California and Baja California have long worked together to create a vibrant, interdependent economy that is a model for binational cooperation. That economy could not exist and thrive without a key resource: water. The border communities are fortunate to have the Colorado River that delivers water reliably and at a reasonable cost for municipal, industrial and agricultural uses. Working within the framework of the 1944 Water Treaty, the U.S. and Mexico work cooperatively to ensure that the Colorado River continues to provide a reliable water supply to the border region.
This will be the topic at the Chamber’s upcoming Cross-Border Business Forum on Wednesday, May 30th, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Chamber. The speakers will discuss the importance of the Colorado River to the border region and detail the efforts in the U.S. and Mexico to maximize water reliability and prepare for climate change impacts.
