    Working with the Bureau of Reclamation, upper basin states drafted the Upper Colorado River Storage Compact and prepared plans to develop the water of the Colorado, and to meet their obligation of providing million acre-feet annually to the lower basin states as agreed upon in the compact. Since the completion of the Glen Canyon Dam in , the once warm and muddy Colorado River has run clear and cold, with a drastically altered ecosystem. A new plan to release regular, intentional floods — to resupply sediment and restore species habitat — aims to reverse the damage done to the Grand Canyon’s natural systems over the last 50 years. Susan Gutenberger (Columbia River Basin Hatchery Review Team, Lower Snake River Compensation Plan Hatchery Review Team) is the supervisory microbiologist at the USFWS Lower Columbia River Fish Health Center. She has a B.S. in microbiology and zoology and an M.S. in veterinary science from the University of Idaho.

While it was recognized that storage on the Colorado River was essential not only for the flood protection and development for the lower basin, the Upper Basin States faced the possibility that water conserved by storage would be put to use in the Lower Basin more rapidly than the Upper Basin could use its share of the normal flow and thus form.

Established inthe Recovery Program is a unique partnership of local, state, and federal agencies, water and power interests, and environmental groups working to recover endangered fish in the Upper Colorado River Basin while water development proceeds in accordance with federal and state laws and interstate compacts.

Key provisions of this federal legislation included (1) declaration that the Colorado River Compact would be effective upon the approval of six basin states if California, by state law, limited its guaranteed use to million acre-feet of water per year; (2) authorization for building Boulder/Hoover Dam and the All-American Canal; and Protection and development of lower Colorado River basin.

To these ends the Colorado River Basin is divided into two Basins, and an apportionment of the use of part of the water of the Lower Basin, and whenever necessary the States of the Upper Division shall deliver at Lee.

Within the upper basin, under the Compact, the portion of Colorado River available to the upper basin states (Arizona being excluded) is allocated according to the following percentages.

The year marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Colorado River Compact. Delegates from the seven Colorado River Basin states met on November 9,in New Mexico to discuss, negotiate and ultimately work out the compact. It was then signed in the Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe, on November The compact apportioned Colorado River water between Upper and Lower Basin states.

The Colorado River, creating hydroelectricity for the bright lights, big city of Las Vegas, Nevada, is also the source of water for seven U.S. states, as well as Mexico, and the Navajo. Although the Hoover Dam was one of the largest river-development projects in the world, it was not the first.

Consideration must be given to the ancient Marib Dam. All the basin needed to do was augment the river with a series of canals, pumping plants and pipelines to import water from the Columbia River basin in the Pacific Northwest.

If the compact and treaty with Mexico allocated million acre-feet, but the river only provided 15 million, they would find million acre-feet somewhere else. Graphic credit: Colorado River Basin Forecast Center > From (Tony Davis): May’s monthly runoff prediction for the April-through-July period was 65% of average, or million acre-feet.

That’s 1 million acre-feet less than the April forecast predicted. Tucson Water customers typically use close toacre-feet a year. Georgia's natural resources include fourteen river basins, which support a rich diversity of native fish and mussel species.

Herbert Hoover, 31st President of the United States, was a man of many interests. He was an engineer, a conservationist, a fisherman, a humanitarian, and a politician, not always in the same order.
