Bipartisan Colorado River Drought Plan Overwhelmingly Passes in Congress. Audubon Says: “Win for People and Birds in the Arid West.”

WASHINGTON—“The Colorado River is the hardest working river, but after decades of drought, we needed these new rules for sharing the responsibility of keeping more water in rivers and reservoirs. Shortage on the river is imminent, but we can avoid catastrophe with measures like the DCP,” said Jennifer Pitt, Audubon’s Colorado River Program Director. “While there is more work to be done, this is a major step not just for the future of the Colorado River, but for the people, birds, economies and communities of the arid West.”
