Abstract:

The USBR's Lower Colorado Regional Office (LCR) in Boulder City, Nevada, co-sponsored the first application of the Management Improvement Program (MIP) in an irrigation district to test the effectiveness of the process in improving the performance of irrigated agriculture and the management and conservation of federally subsidized water supplies. Assessment after four years of involvement is addressed from two perspectives: one of a sponsoring agency, and the other of an agency representative participating in the process.
