Five years ago the US and Mexico cooperated on an unprecedented project: the release of water from the Morelos Dam outside of Yuma into the long desiccated Colorado River Delta. The water wasn’t allocated for cities or irrigation: it was for purely environmental purposes – to measure the revitalizing effect that just a little bit of water could have. Although the release only lasted a few months, the work on revitalization has continued. We’ll check in on the work and see what the long-term impact has been.
