Colorado River Basin Provides Huge Water Management Challenge

<< back to releases

The Colorado River basin presents the greatest water management challenges of any river basin in the United States, with ever-expanding demands for multiple water uses, demand exceeding supply, and valued but fragile eco-systems.

The importance of instream flows - the amount of water flowing in a stream or river - is more pressing than ever, but in many parts of the basin, all the water is spoken for. The Alliance for Water Efficiency, American Rivers and the Environmental Law Institute partnered on a project funded by the Walton Family Foundation to outline the practical possibilities for linking water efficiency efforts and healthier instream flows in the basin.

If a stretch of water is identified as needing improved instream flow, and a realistic opportunity for improving water efficiency exists, willing partners can generally build the bridges necessary to overcome other challenges. That is the principal finding of the report completed by the three organizations.

"We see an opportunity here for communities to do double duty with water efficiency: meet their water needs and benefit the environment at the same time," said Mary Ann Dickinson of the Alliance for Water Efficiency. "We wanted in this project to document what the barriers and issues might be in moving this concept forward."
