Arizona faces Colorado River water cutbacks

More from this show

For the first time ever, Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico will have to take less water from the Colorado River next year. The cuts were ordered by the Bureau of Reclamation under an agreement signed in May to keep enough water in Lake Mead. Arizona will take the biggest hit at 192,000 acre feet, or about 7 percent of its total allotment.
