Thank you for this really interesting story. We visited the Grand Canyon last september (2017) and are still in awe of its beauty. This Colorado River story is worrying. Especially as it has so far not seem to have caught a large exposure on Youtube. We sincerely hope that the US is spending sufficient time and effort. kind regards from your friends (and water managers) in The Netherlands.
I would had appreciated if you guys also had showed the Colorado Delta, which is dried.
us destroy this river
Eric is a cutie!
Colorado has the water rights from a 150 yr old agreement. So they are taking 60% of the head water before it leaves the Rockies and piping it thru the mountains to Denver and other Front Range cities, with construction under way to add more pipes to increase that to 80 %. So the Colorado water stays in Colorado. Everyone down stream is SOL. The Army Corp of Engineering can only give advice similar to the NTSB. It's Dog eat Dog time….. Not global warming going on here, just plain Greed……
