Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study
Moving Forward to Address Challenges Identified in the Study
Next Steps - Phase 1
Agricultural Conservation, Productivity and Water Transfers Workgroup
Agricultural conservation and voluntary water transfers can have many benefits and in particular promote flexibility in adapting to uncertain future conditions. This Workgroup will collect information and prepared a report that quantifies agricultural conservation and transfers of Colorado River water (both within and outside the Basin) that have occurred to date, documents programs that have been successful to date, lists any existing future plans for these types of activities, and estimates what potential savings could come from these existing plans. From this baseline information, the Workgroup will propose Phase 2 activities to the Coordination Team.
This Workgroup is led by three Co-Chairs:
