Colorado River: Lifeblood of the Southwest

Jeanine Jones

Shared among seven states and with Mexico, the Colorado River is an important water supply for Southern California. The river basin, now experiencing long-term drought conditions, faces an expected future of shortage as climate change increases water demands and lessens mountain runoff. Jeanine Jones will discuss the basin’s complex legal and institutional framework, together with efforts underway to mitigate shortages impacts, including innovative binational partnership opportunities. She will also provide background on basin hydrology and water management. Jones is the interstate resources manager for the California Department of Water Resources.
