Interior Leaders Attend Symposium for Drought Solutions

New actions for long-term Colorado River preservation aree outlined.

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland participated in the Colorado River Symposium last week in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with local officials and other department leaders. They discussed the drought crisis affecting the western United States and proposed new action items the Department of the Interior is willing to take to address the steadily dropping water levels of the Colorado River System.

“The prolonged drought afflicting the West is one of the most significant challenges facing our country,” said Secretary Haaland. “We must work together to make the tough choices necessary to chart a sustainable future for the Colorado River System on which more than 40 million people depend.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland as she heads efforts to preserve the Colorado River system.
  • For Commissioner Camille Calimlim Touton as she oversees the Bureau of Reclamation.
  •  That Assistant Secretary Tanya Trujillo would be discerning as she leads the Office of Water and Science.
