    In , the Salinity Control Act was amended to direct the Secretary of the Interior to give preference to units which reduce salinity at the least cost per unit of salinity reduction (or cost-effectiveness). Cost-effectiveness is defined as the Salinity Program's annual cost per ton of salt prevented from entering the Colorado River system. Colorado River Salinity Management International Boundary and Water Commission.

    This Review, the Review, Water Quality Standards for Salinity, Colorado River System (Review), is a review of the water quality standards for salinity for the Colorado River. It summarizes the Colorado River Basin Salinity Contro l Program (Program) and its proposed plan of implementation for continued salinity control. Elevated levels of dissolved solids in water (salinity) can result in numerous and costly issues for agricultural, industrial, and municipal water users. The Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act of (Public Law ) authorized planning and construction of salinity-control projects in the Colorado River Basin. One of the first projects was the Lower Gunnison Unit, a project to.

    Abstract: Herbert H. Vandemoer, resident of Sterling, Colorado, was a geographic appointee to the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) from , representing the South Platte River Basin. The CWCB was formed in as a state agency to aid in the protection and development of waters in the state. It is a division of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. The meeting of the Council is being held under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act of The Council was established by the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act of (Pub. L. ) (Act) to receive reports and advise Federal agencies on implementing the Act.

Title II of the Act creates the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program (Program) which focuses on improving the water quality of the Colorado River to U.S. users above Imperial Dam. Since implementation of the Program, measures have been put in place which now reduce the annual salt load of the Colorado River by more than million tons.

combined four existing programs, including the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program, into the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).

Over the years, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) has evolved from a mode of labor/cost intensive detailed evaluation of a few farms and biological sites to a broader, but less detailed evaluation of.

Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program Overview. The program reduces salinity preventing salts from dissolving and mixing with the river's flow.

Irrigation improvements and vegetation management reduce water available to transport salts vertically, laterally and on the soil surface. Point sources, such as saline springs are also controlled.

the state-supported Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act was passed by Congress. The Act provided a path forward for the salinity of the river to be reduced while not impacting the rights of the Upper Basin States outlined in the Upper Colorado River Basin Compact of The U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation has the responsibility for developing implementation strategies for salinity control projects in the Colorado River Basin. Determining when and which projects should be built depends primarily upon the planning and construction funds available at various times during the program period and other considerations.

The Basin States Parallel Program offers financial assistance of up to 75% to landowners in order to improve the efficiency of irrigation systems on their land in western Colorado. It is estimated that over 1, tons of salt were entering the Colorado River each year from designated salinity areas in Colorado prior to By implementing the program, rural landowners.

Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program: This coalition of federal agencies and Colorado Basin States have implemented salinity control projects that have eliminated close to a million tons of salt per year from entering the Colorado River.

It is estimated that these salt reduction efforts reduce economic damages by about $ million/year. Downloadable. Dissolved salts (salinity) adversely affect numerous urban and agricultural users of Colorado River water in California and Arizona.

Congress in authorized a major salinity control program. Studies of general economic benefits from salinity abatement and the cost per unit of salinity reduction expected from specific proposed projects have been developed by the responsible.

Daily mean discharge at Colorado River above Imperial Dam, Arizona-California, water years. Water-Quality Issues. Salinity of the Colorado River probably is the biggest water-quality issue in the basin.

The major sources of salinity are the saline soils of the Colorado Plateau and agricultural irrigation-return flows. Reservoir releases in the Colorado River Basin upstream from the Grand Valley augmented river flows with dilute water and partially offset the effects of low natural streamflows on salinity.

The high and prolonged runoff in seemed to have affected salinity in the Colorado River more noticeably than the low-flow period of The Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act, Public Lawand the laws authorizing three other conservation cost-sharing programs were begun J In the farm bill, Public Lawthey were repealed and replaced by a new cost-sharing program, the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
