- Colorado-New Mexico regional Extreme Precipitation Study Completed late 2018. From Bill McCormick, Chief Colorado Dam Safety, “This is the culmination of many years of hard work by many individuals. Everyone involved in this effort should congratulate themselves for what has been accomplished. I would challenge anyone to read these volumes and not be impressed with what we have done in the interest of advancing the science of extreme precipitation.” The Probable Maximum Precipitation report can be downloaded here.
