The vast Colorado River Basin is the focus of River
Report, the Foundation’s biannual newsletter that explores
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
has 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.
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.
