"Exceptional drought conditions across the west have continued to worsen over the years. In fact the past years been the driest or second driest in most south western states since record keeping began in eighteen ninety five the worsening drought warming western climate has led to record low levels in the colorado river which is the main source of water for much of the south west because the water is shared and the supplies dwindling. It's important to bring up. Water rights today will explore the impacts of the drought the colorado river. Water right with eric kuhn eric. Thank you for joining us on. The weather needs podcast. Thank you for the invitation l. It's now this is a very contemporary and critical discussion. Because even as we're taping this year on june thirtieth the west is in the midst of drought. We're seeing just unbelievable. Record shattering heat in parts of the pacific northwest and in canada. And so this is a timely discussion. You are the general manager of the colorado river water conservation district for over twenty years. So you certainly no water and water rights in the west but before we get that just give me your sort of on the ground professional thoughts on what's going on with drought and drying conditions and heat in the west right now here in twenty twenty. Well this is a great example of of. I think what we may be experiencing in the future with climate change in the last couple of years i and i live in the mountains of colorado I live in glenwood springs. Were about thirty miles north of aspen in about an hour west avail. Were at the confluence of the roaring fork in the colorado river's in were right there in the middle of the rocky mountains This year we did not have that bad a winter we had about eighty five percent. Snowpack ecorse kovic reduced the visits. Do you know skiing visits But it wasn't that bad a ski season and neither was last year. Neither was twenty twenty. In fact there were some parts of the mountains that had record snows. but we didn't have the runoff. The run off his been dampened By dry soil conditions that have developed in because we didn't have a good monsoon for the last three years now as we speak. We're having some pretty decent monsoon weather in western colorado. We've had in fact. A showers have shut down the interstate. I seventy yesterday for three days in a row because of the heavy rains on burn scars from last year. But we've had we've seen a what we call a temperature driven drought in normally when we talk about drought we think of a temporary condition of low precipitation that leads to hydrologic shortages crops. Don't have enough water. Perhaps cities water supplies run low. But what we're seeing today Is maybe a temperature. Driven drought more than a precipitation drought Because as you know as temperatures go up a growing seasons get longer in the mountains and Transpiration the amount of water needed for the native van. Irrigated crops goes up so for the same precipitation. we're seeing less off a where we're seeing less water in the river. You know and of course. The colorado river is a major major river that drains two hundred almost two hundred fifty thousand square miles about one twelfth of the continental forty eight states. It serves two countries seven states. Nine states if you count to states in mexico a forty million people in the basin and in the surrounding areas like denver and los angeles and You know phoenix in tucson. All you've all use river water as do over five million acres of irrigated crop lands including what we call the salad bowl of the united states. Which is the yuma and imperial valleys where they grow lettuce and carrots and crops all year round about what we're seeing is not enough water to meet the demands on the river that have developed over the last hundred years and we have a. We have a gauge. Those gauges are these big reservoirs That the bureau of reclamation built the river has a flow of about a natural flow of. Let's say fifteen million acre feet per year in the united states. We use acre feet to to measure your water and it's a football field With water a foot deep. It's about three hundred twenty. Five thousand gallons. So fifteen million acre feet. Let me give you by comparison the flow of the mississippi in new orleans. It is about six hundred million acre feet so you can see is pretty small. Fifteen million is also about the same as the flow of the mohawk river through through new york city but the colorado river since it sets a huge geographic basin. There's always been this intense competition for the water of the river. I mean beginning one hundred years ago with the with the negotiations that ultimately led to the construction of hoover dam The big dam the first large dam in the united states That competition has been intense between irrigators in cities in between one state and another and of course between the mexico and the united states. It's a river that that starts in the mountains of colorado and wyoming but it ultimately flows to the ocean the gulf of baja california down in mexico. So there's this intense competition for water. We've built these two large reservoirs lake. Mead and lake powell. They're the two largest man made reservoirs in the united states and beginning about two thousand. When i was in mike working as a in two thousand and things look good. These reservoirs were full of their capacity. Has over fifty million acre feet and you know every every every drop of water of the capacity of these reservoirs was full well beginning in two thousand and in twenty two years since then We've slowly drained these reservoirs down to critically low levels so it's been year after year after year. So this is marsha wetter. This is not just something. We're seeing. Because i've seen recent images of need for example and it's right. This has been a sustained issue. This is a sustained issue that really began about in the late beat. We really began to see the impacts of temperature driven reductions in flow in the late nineteen eighty s then in the in the nineteen nineteen nineties. The very large project called the central arizona project which moves a lot of water from the parker area into phoenix. In tucson. it was finished. The construction was completed. It came on the line in hand has a capacity to deliver about ten percent of the of the river's water to central arizona. As soon as it came on the line then things started tipping and we start at the temperatures started. You know were were rising the the level the model water we were getting the inflow to these reservoirs was going down and all of a sudden now we find ourselves twenty two years later with critically low reservoirs in what it really means in. The long run is We're going to have to use less water out of this river and that gets into water rights. You know well within a talk all asia's we're gonna talk all about water right if i just wanted you to sort of set the stage here for that aren't with air kuhn water rights as a know an issue you know. Even i had recent student of mine at the university of georgia looking at water issues in the four corners region and some of the navajo lands. And so i kind of had a crash course in reading her dissertation on some of the challenges and some of the issues. You mentioned there. I wanted to kind of weather geek out on a couple.
