Once again, a section of the Colorado River leads a national environmental group’s list of the U.S.’s most endangered rivers.
But American Rivers says it’s put the Lower Colorado River No. 1 on its list not because there’s no progress toward fixing its problems. Instead, the group believes progress has been made in recent years, particularly the near-completion of a three-state agreement to reduce water use across the Lower Colorado River Basin to prop up Lake Mead, said Matt Rice, the group’s Colorado River program manager.
