Water management of the Colorado River Basin

Water management of the Colorado River Basin has involved a wide range of governmental institutions from local to federal.

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are also playing an important role in water management of the Basin. NGOs range from representing agricultural water consumers, working to restore the Colorado River Delta, to working with farmers to manage water withdrawals more sustainably.

We’ll explore the nature of NGOs role in water management of the Colorado River Basin and why water management is being done by NGOs as opposed to governmental or for-profit institutions.

DCDC continues to explore, through research and engagement, the wide range of water management strategies that will be needed to achieve water sustainability within the Basin.
