Far beyond experimental but not widely reported, weather modification today is anchored not only in science but is an ever-growing practice, both here in the United States and a number of countries worldwide. From agricultural operations and ski resorts to water suppliers, the increasing application of weather modification tools to generate rain and other forms of precipitation has multiple environmental, economic, and policy implications. Amy’s presentation at the 2015 WaterSmart conference provided an overview of the history and science of weather modification, the scope of “rainmaking” today, and its future implications for water supplies and demand, among other issues.

The Rockland County (NY) Task Force on Water Resources Management released a report on the water supply status of Rockland County by Amy Vickers & Associates, Inc. The report includes a preliminary estimate of a potential 4 to 7 million gallons per day (mgd) in future demand reductions from fixing leaking pipes, conservation, and green infrastructure. The report by Amy Vickers is based on a study she conducted at the request of the Task Force following a November 2014 order by the New York State Public Service Commission.
