How Can Water Efficiency Improve Stream Flows

Can water efficiency efforts help in practice to improve instream flows?  A report from the Alliance for Water Efficiency, American Rivers, and the Environmental Law Institute outlines practical possibilities for linking water efficiency efforts and healthier instream flows in the Colorado River basin.  Here the 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.
