THE ALLIANCE FOR WATER EFFICIENCY, AMERICAN RIVERS, AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL LAW INSTITUTE TO HOLD WEBINAR ON WATER EFFICIENCY AND INSTREAM FLOWS ON DECEMBER 7

Project LogoCan water efficiency efforts help in practice to improve instream flows?  The Colorado River basin presents the greatest water management challenges of any river basin in the nation, with ever-expanding demands for multiple water uses, water demand exceeding supply, valued but fragile ecosystems, and support for nearly every type of water-relevant interest. The importance of instream flows – the amount of water flowing in a stream or river – is more pressing than ever, but in many parts of the basin, all water is spoken for.

new report from the Alliance for Water EfficiencyAmerican Rivers, and the Environmental Law Institute outlines practical possibilities for linking water efficiency efforts and healthier instream flows in the Colorado River basin.  If a stretch of water is identified as needing improved instream flow, and a realistic opportunity for improving water efficiency exists, willing partners generally can build the bridges necessary to overcome other challenges.

In this webinar, project team members will describe the project’s findings, the reasons for undertaking it, experience from case studies west-wide, and the relevant law in the seven basin states.
