waters being diverted, to restore wetlands and forests along the colorado river delta. i know arapahoe reports the colorado river delta in the baja california desert. for decades. waterless has been its defining characteristic until a groundbreaking agreement between the us and mexico was signed in 2012, allowing water to flow in parts back into the delta c. it is important them as a narrow esl not only got it's important to mention that this acord is unique in the world in which 2 countries the united states and mexico decide to transfer volumes of was her from one country to the other exclusively for the benefit of the environment, i meant that by our, in the results of what happened when water was returned to the region, speak for themselves. he went gabriella gonzalez, a scientist with the. so nora institute says since conservation efforts began, hundreds of acres of forest and wetlands have been restored. it's
