Culp, P. 2001. Feasibility of Purchase and Transfer of Water for Instream Flow in the Colorado River Delta, Mexico. Winner of the 2000 Lillian S. Fisher Prize in Environmental Law and Public Policy. Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy: Tucson, AZ. 45pp. ISBN 1-931143-14-5
Provides an overview of the developing legal regime that governs the allocation of water on the Colorado River and asserts that voluntary purchases and transfers of water provide a simple method of assuring a reliable and politically palatable supply of water for the Delta; proposes the clearest means to overcoming barriers to doing so and discusses the potential reductions in river salinity that could result from a delta flow program if the right source of water is chosen.
