Arizona utility tries to end multistate Colorado River feud
DENVER -- Arizona's largest water provider tried Tuesday to defuse a multistate dispute over the Colorado River, saying it regretted the belligerent-sounding words it used to describe its management strategy for the critical, over-used waterway. The Central Arizona Project, which provides water to about 5 million people, pledged to be more cooperative with other river users and promised "to have a more respectful and transparent dialogue in the future."
