Effects of climate change on communally managed water systems softened by shared effort

Shared fates and experiences in a community can help it withstand changes to water availability due to climate change, a recent study by Sandia National Laboratories researchers found. The work, recently published in a special socio-hydrology issue of Water Resources Research, paired a dynamic systems model of an acequia community and its water system with a hydrology model of an upland water source to study how the community responds to changes in water availability and flow.
