Abstract: Water reallocation to meet mandated flow requirements and trust responsibilities, established in Federal law and water authority, can result in large uncompensated losses to irrigated agriculture. This paper discusses the nature and potential cost of water-supply interruptions due to Federal actions, and provides a comparative assessment of alternative risk-mitigation measures.
