Is this true for Arizona

…Is this true for Arizona…  It is well known by now that drought has spread to the entirety of the Colorado River watershed, a vital source of water for 1 in 10 Americans…???

Water Deeply. As part of your community membership, we will be holding an exclusive Deeply Talks virtual event on Friday, Sept. 28, at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET to discuss the unseen consequences of long-term water scarcity in the Upper Colorado watershed, and potential solutions that could ease the way forward.

It is well known by now that drought has spread to the entirety of the Colorado River watershed, a vital source of water for 1 in 10 Americans and 5 million acres of farmland. All indications are that this is a new permanent condition, not merely an episodic drought. The question looming before us is, what to do about it?

In this 30-minute conversation we’ll be joined by experts Bhavna Arora, a research scientist at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, who studies the effects of changing snowmelt in Colorado headwater streams; and by Jack Schmidt, watershed sciences professor at Utah State University, who plans a new study on managing the watershed differently in light of climate change. Matt Weiser, our managing editor, will moderate the discussion.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about challenges facing the Colorado River – and potential solutions. If you’d like to give us your feedback or ask a question of the panelists, email us (water@newsdeeply.com) or tweet us @WaterDeeply
