Water for River Restoration: Potential for Collaboration between Agricultural and Environmental Water Users in the Rio Grande Project Area

King, J.P. and J. Maitland

Publication Date:

This report was commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to explore the potential for working with agricultural water users to direct some part of the water supply of the Rio Grande in the Chihuahuan Desert to restoration of the river. While there is a long and growing history of disputes among competing water users in the Rio Grande Basin, and agricultural and environmental groups have in particular butted heads, the two groups share many common interests in future management of the river.
