There may be a temporary service outage on our Digital Library (non-newspaper) pages on Wednesday, July 30th while we update the CONTENTdm production server from version 6.5 to version 6.8. This means that the Digital Collections may be temporarily unavailable on July 30th. We plan to have all services restored Thursday, July 31st. Thank you for your patience.

Southwest United States
Population growth, dams, and irrigation projects have dramatically transformed the waters of the Southwest. Alterations along the Colorado, the area’s biggest river, have been severe and numerous, but all waters of the Southwest will be increasingly impaired unless we change our ways. This video provides an overview of the impacts and challenges. Some actions and tools are suggested to ensure that our limited waters are used more wisely.
