Supporting Alternatives to Proposed Dams and Diversions, Especially Conservation

Xeriscape landscapeThroughout the Colorado River basin, studies are moving forward so that cities, states, and regions can have secure water supplies in the future. Save the Colorado is working with partner organizations throughout the basin to ensure that these studies contain policies that include scientific analyses of climate change, adequate streamflows to protect wildlife and habitat, economic impacts to the recreational and tourism economy, and aggressive water conservation measures. We support alternatives to new dams and diversions that protect and restore rivers — those alternatives include water conservation and efficiency, water recycling and reuse, growth management, and water-sharing agreements with farmers. We are actively promoting water conservation and efficiency in all states and cities across the basin especially in Colorado, Utah, and Southern California.
