The engineered spring flood that brought water to previously dry reaches of the lower Colorado River and its delta resulted in greener vegetation, the germination of new vegetation along the river and a temporary rise in the water table, according to new results from the binational team of scientists studying the water’s effects. The team’s latest findings will be presented at the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting at 3:10 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 18 in Moscone South Room 308.
