Colorado River

The Colorado River is one of the principal rivers in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. It is 2,330 km long, making it the sixth longest in the country. Starting in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado in Grand Lake, the river flows southwest across the Colorado Plateau and through the Grand Canyon before reaching Lake Mead and entering into Mexico.
For the first time in history, the US government declared a water shortage on the Colorado River, making it mandatory for the states to cut down water consumptions in the Southwest. This is caused because of climate change-led drought.
