In formulating its projects and activities, WestFAST works through its four work groups (data, drought, energy, and infrastructure) to facilitate inter-agency cooperation and to support WSWC in its mission of implementing the WGA’s water-related objectives.
In 2014-2015, WestFAST continued to promote the over-arching goal of improved collaboration among federal agencies, and between state and federal agencies engaged in western water-resource issues. Download a copy of the 2015 WestFAST Accomplishments.
