Abstracts of the presentations given on Wednesday, 25 July 2007, in Session 16 of the UCOWR Conference.


Beginning in late July and continuing through mid September 2006 the Paso del Norte region, consisting of El Paso City and County, Texas, southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, experienced a number of record high precipitation events and severe localized and widespread flooding. This paper focuses on federal agency and irrigation district experiences, observations, preliminary assessment of events and management responses and the recommendations arising from these floods.
