    The Colorado River (Spanish: Río Colorado) is one of the principal rivers (along with the Rio Grande) in the Southwestern United States and northern 1,mile-long (2, km) river drains an expansive, arid watershed that encompasses parts of seven U.S. states and two Mexican states. Starting in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the river flows generally southwest across. This story is part of a project covering the Colorado River Basin and water in the West.

Like everything about Colorado River management, it’s legally complex and controlled by a deeply entrenched power structure involving the seven basin states, the federal Bureau of Reclamation and established users in agriculture and municipalities that have assigned positions in the line to the spigot—spots known as “water rights.”.

Study region The study region encompasses the Upper Colorado River Basin (UCRB), which provides water for 40 million people and is a vital part of the water supply in the western U.S.

Study focus Groundwater and surface water can be considered a single water resource and thus it is important to understand groundwater contributions to streamflow.

The Bureau of Reclamation's Upper Colorado and Lower Colorado Regions, in collaboration with representatives of the seven Colorado River Basin States (non-federal Cost Share Partners), submitted a Proposal in June to fund the "Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study" under Reclamation's Basin Study Program.

In September The CRSS is an important water-policy planning tool that has been used by the Bureau of Reclamation and other stakeholders in numerous major efforts such as negotiation of the Colorado River Interim Guidelines for Lower Basin Shortages and Coordinated Operations for Lake Powell and Lake Mead, the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and.

The Colorado River provides drinking water for one in ten Americans, nourishes cities including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, and Phoenix, and the lower half of the river waters nearly 90 percent of the nation’s winter vegetables. However, water demands are outstripping supply, and climate change makes the situation even more urgent.

The river is. The Colorado River Basin is the setting for some of the most drawn-out and complex water issues in the Western U.S. Inthe Colorado River Drought Contingency Plan — a water-conservation. The Lower Colorado River Multi-Species Conservation Program (LCR MSCP) was created to balance the use of the Colorado River water resources with the conservation of native species and their habitats.

The program works toward the recovery of species currently listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The Colorado River is a reliable source of water for Utah, says the Utah Division of Water Resources Published Falling storage levels at both lakes Powell and Mead have highlighted the potential effects of climate change on the Colorado River, causing some to question its future viability as a reliable water supply source for the state.

The Commissioner of U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) - the designated "water master" of the Lower Basin - manages the River and decides whether Lower Basin water users will receive their full allocation based on the Colorado River month Study (Operation Plan for Colorado River System Reservoirs), which determines water level projections for Lake Powell and Lake Mead published each.

The Colorado River Basin Study was initiated by Reclamation as part of the Department of the Interior’s WaterSMART program under the SECURE Water Act. With Phase 4 of the study, the team is seeking a broad range of options to help resolve future water supply and demand imbalances in the Colorado River.

And thanks to research mandated by the Grand Canyon Protection Act, the fate of the chub and the canyon ecology are factors that also will need to be considered in the yet-to-be.
