Colorado River Basin Stakeholders Moving Forward to Address Challenges Identified in the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study

Phase 1

Agricultural Water Conservation, Productivity and Transfers Workgroup

Agricultural conservation and voluntary water transfers can have many benefits and in particular promote flexibility in adapting to uncertain future conditions. The Workgroup’s Phase 1 objectives were to document trends in agricultural water conservation and transfers of Colorado River water and to identify opportunities and challenges for expanding agricultural water conservation to address projected future water supply and demand imbalances and enhance overall resiliency.

Chapter 4 of the Phase 1 Report is a product of the Workgroup and documents the Workgroup’s Phase 1 activities.

This Workgroup is led by three Co-Chairs:

  • Ken Nowak – Bureau of Reclamation
  • Tina Shields – Imperial Irrigation District
  • Reagan Waskom – Colorado State University
