Colorado River Reaches the Gulf of California for the First Time in 16 Years

The reunion is the end of a 53-day journey for the long-planned Colorado River pulse flow, an artificial flood meant to restore the river’s parched delta. The water comes from an international agreement called Minute 319. The plan allocates about 1 percent of the river’s flow to a five-year experiment that will mimic spring floods in the delta. The goal is bring back the plants and animals that once thrived in the river’s outlet.
