New Mexico Central Arizona Project Entity Chairwoman Darr Shannon, when the agenda was being approved asked that the presentation by Norm Gaume, retired engineer and former Interstate Stream Commission director, be moved to before public comment. A motion was made and approved to do so.
Gaume said he would discuss two items. The first was the application of basic arithmetic to the facts. Second, he would present a model to estimate the amount of usable water out of a proposed reservoir.
