Scientists have found that climate change is playing a big role in shrinking the flow of the Colorado River, but recent research suggests Arizona’s reservoirs on the Salt and Verde rivers could fare better as temperatures continue to rise. 

The findings back the assurances of water managers at Salt River Project that their system of reservoirs appears to be relatively resilient in the face of climate change.

Some climate scientists still caution that uncertainties remain and that the Salt and Verde rivers could be hit hard as the burning of fossil fuels continues to heat up the planet.
