Hydropower (WAPA)

Hydropower Revenues and Funding Colorado River Basin Activities
Lower Basin
Hydropower revenues are used to finance a number of activities throughout the Colorado River Basin. In the Lower Basin, the Lower Colorado River Basin Development Fund collects revenues from the Central Arizona Project (CAP), as well as certain revenues from the Boulder Canyon and Parker-Davis Projects. These revenues are available without further appropriation toward defraying CAP operation and maintenance costs, salinity control efforts, and funding for Indian water rights settlements identified under the Arizona Water Settlements Act of 2004 (i.e., funding for water systems of the Gila River Indian Community and the Tohono O’odham Nation, among others). The Colorado River Dam fund utilizes power revenues generated by the Boulder Canyon Project (i.e., Hoover Dam) to fund operational and construction costs associated with that facility.

Upper Basin
In the Upper Basin, the Upper Colorado River Basin Fund collects revenues from the initial units of CRSP and funds operation and maintenance expenses, salinity control, the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program, and endangered fish studies on the Colorado and San Juan rivers.
