Rivers Work Better When They’re Wet

Colorado River

The "bathtub ring" showing how far the water has dropped due to the drought

Last week, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced it will have to release less water to the river’s lower basin.

This could have a serious effect on the 36 million people who rely on the river for drinking water, and it puts at risk 15% of our nation’s agriculture and a $26 billion recreation economy that relies on the river.

We need Congress to get serious about long-term solutions for the entire basin. It’s time for fundamental changes in how we manage water in the Colorado River.
