California butts heads with other Colorado River states amid shortage

California released a proposed plan for Colorado River water conservation that directly contradicts a separate plan proposed by the basin’s six other states

Kyle Roerink, executive director of the Great Basin Water Network, said he understands California’s position. Remarking on the CBMA, he said, “There are no upper basin cuts, and it defends Lake Powell elevations at all costs. From a lower basin perspective, the upper basin water managers must have been grinning ear to ear when they signed [the CBMA]. It also doesn’t prohibit more development of the river [in the upper basin].”
