Municipal and public water providers in the Upper and Lower Colorado River Basin signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday, affirming their commitments to implement comprehensive and innovative water conservation programs, initiatives, policies, and actions within their communities.
“Forging a sustainable future for the Colorado River will take a commitment from all of us to use less water. More than two dozen water agencies from cities across the Southwest have made this commitment on behalf of the millions of people they serve,” said Metropolitan General Manager Adel Hagekhalil. “This MOU is a key step towards bringing the River into balance, and powerful proof that working together, we can build solutions.”
