Water Efficiency for Instream Flow


The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE), American Rivers, and the Environmental Law Institute partnered on a project funded by The Walton Family Foundation to outline the 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. That is the principal finding of the report completed and released on November 14, 2011 by the three organizations.
