3.4 Water Rights and Use
3.4.1 Scope of Analysis
“However, these (LMJV) water rights are relatively junior in priority and could be placed on call by downstream senior water rights.”
According to United States Global Change Research Group
(Integrating federal research on global change and climate change)
We have these key issues to face and prepare for:
- Water supplies will become increasingly scarce, calling for trade-offs among competing uses, and potentially leading to conflict.
- Increasing temperature, drought, wildfire, and invasive species will accelerate transformation of the landscape.
- Increased frequency and altered timing of flooding will increase risks to people, ecosystems, and infrastructure.
- Unique tourism and recreation opportunities are likely to suffer.
- Cities and agriculture face increasing risks from a changing climate.
