Aug. 14, 2014

DENVER — The agreement creates the Colorado River System Conservation program, supplying $11 million for pilot conservation programs in 2015 and 2016.

DENVER — A milestone water conservation agreement addressing a long-term imbalance on the Colorado River triggered by years of drought conditions was signed by the federal government and municipal water providers in Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and California, according to a press release.

The agreement creates the Colorado River System Conservation program, providing $11 million for pilot conservation programs in 2015 and 2016, stated the release.

Successful programs may be expanded or extended to offer even more protection for the Colorado River system, continued the release.

The pilot programs will reduce water demand in a range of areas including municipal, industrial and agricultural uses, and water conserved within the project will stay in the Colorado River, benefiting the health of the river system and helping to improve the diminishing reservoir levels, noted the release.
