Binational Issues and Activities with Mexico
Pursuant to the 1944 Water Treaty with Mexico and the United States, the United States is obligated to deliver 1.5 million acre-feet of Colorado River water annually to Mexico. Currently, there are on-going binational discussions and negotiations associated with operations and activities associated with Treaty compliance including Minute 242 regarding salinity standards are maintained and operations and activities associated with Minutes 316, 317, 318, and 319.
In November 2012, the United States and Mexico signed Minute 319 that establishes cooperative strategies to improve long-term management of the Colorado River.
