The Delta of the Colorado River is under extreme stress due to controlled flow, overallocation of water between different user groups in the upper and lower basins, and prolonged drought. Basin-wide approaches to restore the River and its Delta face many challenges. Through meetings with key stakeholders, extensive literature review, and critical analysis of the underlying issues preventing water from reaching the Delta was conducted. Numerous alternatives are presented to allow more water to reach the Delta in the years to come. A discussion of additional work that needed to make the restoration of the Delta more feasible is included.
