Publisher: Interior Dept., Bureau of Reclamation
The Bureau of Reclamation has published The Colorado River Documents 2008, which chronicles key events and activities undertaken since 1979 by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation to address the pressing issues faced by Colorado River Basin water users and managers.
Like the three volumes that preceded it in 1933, 1948, and 1978, this volume also details the political, legal, institutional, and other instruments developed to address these issues. Reflective of its era, this volume has an increased focus on coordinated operations of the river in both the Upper and Lower Basins, on environmental matters, on the relationship with Mexico, and on Native American water settlements.
This volume is an invaluable resource and historical record documenting that there always will be new challenges to face in the Colorado River Basin. 2010: Paperback.
Year/Pages: 2010: 960 p. and a DVD.
