In 1922 The Colorado River Compact made between the upper basin and lower basin states seem to be adequate for all. According to The Daily Sentinel, under the agreement the upper basin states like Colorado, Utah and Wyoming were obligated to deliver 75 million acres feet of water to the lower basin states. Over the years, population, climate change and other factors have taken its toll on the river. The compact that was made back then made no provisions for drought and now it seems for the upper states to continue to meet their obligations they may have to curtail their own use of water. Officials maybe forced to re-exam that compact and make necessary adjustments.
