  •  AZ, NV and Southern California have been taking (8+ / 0-)

    water from the Colorado River forever. There are limits to the amount and it always is a fight. Southern CA is a desert...as are AZ and NV. So, water from Colorado gets taken to water lawns and swimming pools.

    Colorado River accords is a BIG deal in the west. Trying to change it would look like the 1800's wild west fight...

    and that's what McCain wants to do...change the Colorado River water terms.
