A Colorado River water cut agreement has been reached

The agreement requires California, Arizona, and Nevada to voluntarily conserve 3 million acre-feet of water over the next three years, representing a 13% water cut.
In return, the Biden administration will provide farmers and other users more than a billion dollars in federal funding through the Inflation Reduction Act.

The Colorado River supplies nearly 6 million farmland acres with water, but has been facing a historic drought.
