Burman, who has 25 years of experience working on Western water issues, is the 23rd commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and the first woman to assume the post since the agency was established in 1902. Nominated by President Trump, she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Nov. 16.
Reclamation, under the U.S. Department of the Interior, operates federal water projects in 17 Western states, including the Central Valley Project in California and Hoover Dam and other projects along the Colorado River, a major source of water for Southern California.
