Colorado River water cuts
Nov. 7, 2022
In October, the U.S. government warned that it may impose water supply cuts on California, Arizona and Nevada to protect the Colorado River and its two main reservoirs from overuse, drought and climate change.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation unveiled three possible action plans: one to impose cutbacks, another to allow western states to work out a reduction plan on their own, or a third and least likely option of taking no action.
Kathryn Sorensen, Director of Research at Kyl Center for Water Policy, explains more about these potential plans.
