      Coverage of the Colorado River’s problems is often boiled down to water levels in Lake Mead, but a new book from veteran author David Owen traces the complexities of the river’s many competing demands from its headwaters to its terminus in Mexico.. In “Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River,” Owen takes readers on a backroads journey through the many Author: Tara Lohan. Frank Waters covers all aspects of the history of the Colorado and puts the river as just a part of the entire drainage. It's really a history of the "triangle" of the Rockies that stretches from Montana, Wyoming and Idaho, to the Front Range of the Colorado and over to Utah. The apex is the mouth of the river at the head of the Gulf of California/5(6). As the water book illustrates, Arizona relies on the Colorado River for 40 percent of its water supply. Unfortunately, the Colorado River system has experienced severe drought conditions for more than 17 years. Lake Mead, a vital reservoir on the Colorado River, is less than 40 percent full.

    A river begins at a source (or more often several sources), follows a path called a course, and ends at a mouth or mouths. The water in a river is usually confined to a channel, made up of a stream bed between larger rivers there is often also a wider floodplain shaped by flood-waters over-topping the lains may be very wide in relation to the size of the river channel. A water resource region is the first level of classification used by the United States Geological Survey to divide and sub-divide the United States into successively smaller hydrologic units.. This first level of classification divides the United States into 21 major geographic areas, or regions. These geographic areas contain either the drainage area of a major river, or the combined drainage. INVENTORY OF PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED CHEMICAL ANALYSES DRAINAGE AREA Drainage areas are given in square miles. The drainage areas determined by the Geological Survey are published in the most recent Water-Supply Papers. The figures given by the U. S. Geo­ logical Survey and other agencies are generally accepted as being by: 2.
