Thanks to some innovative thinking, certain dams on the river have been allowed to spill over into the river providing enough volume to reach the river’s final destination — The Pacific Ocean.
Years of development in Colorado, New Mexico and California have pushed the demand for the Colorado’s river water beyond the river’s ability to keep up. Agricultural demand is the big draw off on the great river that created the Grand Canyon and other unforgettable features. A general western drought in recent years has not helped the situation.
But, hope is eternal!
