Wyoming Ag Producers Fight Back Against Feds Telling Them To Use Less Water

>>>Historic drought conditions across the West have prompted a federal call for Wyoming and other western states to reduce their consumption of Colorado River Basin waters this year.

Wyoming State Engineer Brandon Gebhart met this week with representatives from six states, collectively known as "basin states," in Las Vegas.

The meeting was the first of several to determine how the states could voluntarily reduce their use of Colorado River Basin water by 2 million oto 4 million acre-feet to increase flows into lakes Mead and Powell, which are at critically low levels, said Jeff Cowley, the State Engineer's Office administrator of interstate streams.

An acre-foot is the amount of water needed to cover 1 acre of land with 1 foot of water, almost 326,000 gallons.

The basin states include Wyoming, California, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Nevada and  Arizona.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has given the states until mid-August to come up with a water consumption reduction plan, Cowley said.

"If we can't come up with a plan," he added, "the Bureau of Reclamation is going to step in and do it for us.

They sounded alarms about a coming Colorado River crisis. But warnings went unheeded

>>>The Colorado River is approaching a breaking point, its reservoirs depleted and Western states under pressure to drastically cut water use.

It's a crisis that scientists have long warned was coming. Years before the current shortage, scientists repeatedly alerted public officials who manage water supplies that the chronic overuse of the river combined with the effects of climate change would likely drain the Colorado's reservoirs to dangerously low levels.

But these warnings by various researchers — though discussed and considered by water managers — went largely unheeded.

Now, many of the scientists' dire predictions are coming to pass, with Lake Mead and Lake Powell nearly three-fourths empty and their water levels continuing to fall. Some researchers say the seven states that depend on the river would have been better prepared had they acted years ago.

This is the dumbest shit.

Fuck these entitled people who move to the desert who think the basic common sense is not needed to survive on earth.  Perhaps they should decide to move to Michigan, just not NC! Git!

Upper Colorado River leaders push back against federal ask for conservation


>>>One of Colorado's top water officials says he cannot enforce recent federal demands to start conserving more on the Colorado River.

State engineer Kevin Rein oversees the state's water rights system. In a meeting with the Colorado River District board on Jul. 19, Rein assured members he would not be mandating conservation among their municipal, industrial and agricultural users. The district covers 15 counties in Western Colorado.

"There is nothing telling me to curtail water rights. There's nothing telling me that I should encourage people to conserve," Rein said.

Colorado River basin farms stunted by megadrought, as more sacrifice lies ahead

>>>Colorado River basin farms stunted by megadrought, as more sacrifice lies ahead

The irrigation canal that serves her property was shut down amid a 22-year megadrought that has hurt growers across the seven states that comprise the basin.

Vultures gathered in the muddy pools of her canal, feasting on the dying fish, a week after her hay was cut in early June, likely for the last time this year. At the same time, the bills from Caywood's irrigation district are going up to cover increased energy costs to pump water.
