Drought Forces Restrictions On Colorado River Water Releases
August 16, 2013
Relentless drought will force the government to cut back on water releases between Glen Canyon and Lake Mead.
It’s the first time that’s happened since dams were built on the Colorado River.
Reduction starts next year, and the announcement gives the 40 million water users in the Southwest time to plan.
… it’s a warning for nearly 40-million people, from Denver to San Diego, who depend on Colorado River water.
