Details: The Colorado River has experienced more than a decade of serious drought, with the prospect of growing imbalances between supply and demand in the years ahead. On November 20, 2012, the United States and Mexico signed a historic agreement - known as "Minute 319" - to cooperate on a broad range of Colorado River issues under the framework of the 1944 Treaty between the two countries. Robert Snow, an Attorney-Advisor with the Department of the Interior and one of the lead negotiators for the U.S., will discuss the partnership among states, environmental organizations, and the two nations that led to this agreement.
