A University of Colorado study urges the new president who will be elected today and seated in January, to move quickly to protect the Colorado River.

The study says the river is already oversubscribed in that more water has been promised to various users and consumers than is available. Opponents of the Lake Powell Pipeline quickly seized upon the study as another compelling argument against the project.

Because of the over-allocation, cuts to Arizona’s and Nevada’s share of river water are expected by 2018.

Pipeline supporter Karry Rathje with the Washington Conservation District says, “Utah is currently using only one million acre feet of its 1.4 million annual Colorado River allocation.”
