Jennifer Pitt

Jennifer has spent more than 15 years working to protect and restore the Colorado River Delta. Her efforts include her recent central role in the development and implementation of the internationally recognized agreement between the U.S. and Mexico, “Minute 319”, which guides future management of the Colorado River through 2017. The agreement included a provision for a “pulse flow”, a large-scale experimental release of water in the Delta by the U.S. and Mexico that has since been globally recognized by scientific communities and international governments. Her expertise in legal and policy framework has facilitated the development of practical programs to restore Colorado River habitats and has resulted in strong water policy solutions that benefit both water users and the environment.
