Jennifer Pitt sounds an optimistic note about the possibility that the Bureau of Reclamation’s Colorado River Basin Study could reclaim some priority for the retention of water in the rivers of the Colorado River Basin:
The future of this region promises to be more crowded, and likely hotter and drier, but that doesn’t have to spell the death of the Colorado River. Reclamation and the states are facing the need to make decisions of great consequence about how to supply and manage water use in every sector. Let’s hope their new commitment to look at impacts on the river gives them the wisdom to forge a path forward that meets our legitimate water needs and protects and restores healthy flows.
