WHERE DOES COLORADO RIVER WATER COME FROM?
The Colorado River is made up of water that originates from melted snowpack and natural runoff from precipitation in the mountains of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.
HOW IS FRESH WATER FROM THE COLORADO RIVER DIVERTED TO THE COACHELLA VALLEY?
After arriving at the All-American Canal, water from the Colorado River is then diverted through six channels, including the Coachella Canal. This canal then transports a portion of the imported water to the Coachella Valley.
WHAT IS THE WATER USED FOR ONCE IT REACHES THE COACHELLA VALLEY?
Imported water is then used for irrigation and recreational purposes throughout the Eastern Coachella Valley. It is also used to preserve groundwater levels
