The vast Colorado River Basin was the focus
of River Report, the Foundation’s biannual
newsletter that explored issues surrounding the lifeline of
the Southwest and those that share its water – the seven western
states, Mexico and numerous American Indian tribes. Launched in
1998, River Report traced the saga of sharing
surpluses and shortages, restoring endangered fish and the
Colorado River Delta, and issues related to drought, urban growth
and climate change. Coverage of the Colorado River Basin was
folded into our online Western
Water news starting in 2018.
Rising temperatures from climate change are having a noticeable
effect on how much water is flowing down the Colorado River. Read
the latest River Report to learn more about what’s
happening, and how water managers are responding.
