What kind of tensions do we see among upstream/downstream users of the Colorado River?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Colorado River region has been in the midst of a drought for nearly the past decade. As a result, water resources are becoming increasingly scarce, especially relative to the rise in demand. Obviously, when a large amount of water is depleted upstream, states further downstream will experience a corresponding reduction in water supply. Each state wants a larger proportion of the water allocation than the others to duel its own economy and development. As a result, strong cooperation among these states is required along with ramping up efforts to increase water conservation.
