6 Colorado River states submit a plan to cut water use, but California says ‘no deal’

Six of the Colorado River Basin states signed a proposal to cut water use. However, environmental organizations don’t believe the the cuts go far enough. 

“Instead of bending over backwards to prop up Lake Powell, officials should be making plans to save Lake Mead and utilize Glen Canyon a backup facility,” Glen Canyon Institute Executive Director Eric Balken said. “There’s just not enough water to save both reservoirs, and Mead is more vital to the Basin.”
