Water Regulators
Catherine Dudgeon, hydraulic engineer and water regulator for Northwestern Division’s Reservoir Control Center, is responsible for monitoring weather events, including atmospheric rivers. The National Weather Service’s (NWS) Portland office is predicting that up to three atmospheric rivers will pummel the region starting December 1, bringing a very active weather pattern that will dump plenty of rain at lower elevations and snow to the Cascades.
