Effect of U.S.-Mexico Relations on Colorado River Water Shortages

Lake Mead, Nevada Water Level

I saw an interesting article on the web yesterday and was reminded that although there is tremendous media coverage of President Trump’s policies/proposals relating to immigration and economic relations with Mexico, there hasn’t been much public attention paid to the impact that deteriorating relations could have on the future of the Colorado River and water rights for both countries. It’s a particularly important issue in need of being addressed because the U.S.-Mexico Treaty of 1944 expires at the end of 2017 (yes, a mere ten months from now).

The article by Ryan Richards, Senior Policy Analyst for the Public Lands team at the Center for American Progress, provides a great deal of information and is an interesting read, which you can do by CLICKING HERE.

With expectations that the first-ever federal shortage declaration will occur in 2018 after Lake Mead’s water level drops to 1,073 feet (post on that here), the management of the Colorado River is clearly an important issue for both countries, so is hopefully already being addressed in Washington (or soon will be)…
