Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study
In 2012, the Bureau of Reclamation, in collaboration with the Colorado River Basin States, completed the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study (Basin Study). The purpose of the Basin Study is to identify current and future imbalances in water supply and demand in the Basin through 2060, and to provide a series of potential adaptive and mitigation strategies to address supply imbalances. The Basin Study contains four major sections: Water Supply Assessment; Water Demand Assessment; System Reliability Analysis; and Development and Evaluation of Opportunities for Balancing Supply and Demand.
In May 2012, the Basin States and Reclamation initiated the Basin Study’s next steps process. Phase 1 of the “Next Steps” process is underway.
