The Morelos Dam

Environmentalists hope that the upcoming release of water through Morelos Dam revives the Colorado River Delta. Morelos Dam is the last dam on the river. Mexico can be seen in the background in this aerial view of the dam. 

The Colorado River Delta will bloom once again if everything goes according to plan.

Beginning March 23, U.S. and Mexican officials will release more than 105,000 acre-feet of water through the last dam on the Colorado River over an eight-week period.
