The recommendations are contained in "Agricultural/Urban/Environmental Water Sharing: Innovative Strategies for the Colorado River Basin and the West", according to a news release.

Colorado State University's Colorado Water Institute produced the report in response to a 2008 challenge by the Western governors.
