Vulnerability, Consequences, and Adaptation Planning Scenarios” (VCAPS) for the City of Cortez,
In October of 2018, the City of Cortez participated in an activity organized by Western Water Assessment designed to facilitate the City’s desire to increase awareness of the impacts of weather and climate hazards (called VCAPS for short) on the local water supply. Drought was identified as the key hazard of concern for the City, particularly in relationship to water supply management. Long term water supply management is a critical issue for meeting and sustaining the livelihood of the residents of Cortez.
