The Colorado River Collaborative
The lifeblood of the American West is in crisis, due to climate change, drought, growth and overuse. Newsrooms are working together to explain how Utahns are impacted by the river, its tributaries and destinations — and how they can address a dwindling water supply.

The Colorado River Collaborative

We are an extension of the award-winning Great Salt Lake Collaborative. Utah member newsrooms will pool resources for more in-depth coverage with one goal in mind: to educate and inform people about the importance of the river, what’s at stake and what can be done to make a difference.
