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. 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. 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.

The Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program was established by the following Congressional Actions: • The Water Quality Act of (Public Law ) as amended by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act ofmandated efforts to maintain water quality standards in the United States.

• Congress enacted the Colorado River Basin. The study also shows the majority of salinity in the Upper Colorado River Basin comes from groundwater that discharges into streams, also known as baseflow. This occurs as snowmelt and precipitation infiltrate into the ground and interact with sedimentary rocks, which causes salts to dissolve and salinity to increase in ty has a significant.

Salinity loads and sources in the Colorado River Basin. The Colorado River transports between 7 and 9 million tons of salt annually to the Gulf of California depending on climatic control and salt mitigation practices within the basin.

In the average annual salinity at Imperial Dam (just north of the Mexico border) was a flow. Inthe Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act was passed into law. This law was enacted to address concerns regarding the salinity content of the Colorado River.

The law authorized various construction projects in selected areas or "units" of the Colorado River Basin intended to reduce the salinity load in the Colorado River.

All of the Council members at this time are also members of the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Forum (Forum). The Forum is an organization created in by the seven Colorado River Basin States for the purpose of interstate cooperation and to provide the states with the information necessary to comply with the Water Quality Standards for.

The Colorado River salinity is mainly come from geologic materials located in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Natural weathering and human activities, such as irrigation, accelerate the dissolution of saline : Jongho Keum.

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. The increased salinity in the basin is both an ecological and economic concern, with health concerns only becoming an issue when sulfate (SO 4 2-) levels reach above mg/L (Bureau of Reclamation, ).

While the main stem of the Colorado River Basin has not reached salinity levels of environmental concern (>4, mg/L, Pimentel &. To decrease salt loading to the Colorado River from irrigated agriculture, salinity-control projects have been under construction since by the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S.

Department of Agriculture in the Grand Valley and since in the lower Gunnison River Basin of western Colorado. Ina salinity-control project was initiated at Meeker Dome, which involved. The increase in salinity of our western rivers has been identified as one of the most serious water quality problems in the nation.

This is of special concern in the Colorado River where salinity has increased from pristine levels estimated at mg/1 to present-day levels of mg/1 at Imperial Dam. Flow depletions, associated with decreased runoff and increased evaporation and Cited by: 2.

Inthe 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.

Salinity Basin Funding (Lower Gunnison) Our location and senior water rights provide many agricultural water users with a relatively abundant supply of clean water. While junior and downstream users certainly benefit from water conservation measures, efficient water use also benefits senior water rights holders.
