The purpose of a potential Demand Management program is to protect water users in Upper Division States by assisting in maintaining compact compliance for the Upper Division States. It is not to provide surplus water to the Lower Division States. A potential Demand Management program would help the Upper Division States continue to meet their legal obligations and mitigate, prevent, or delay mandatory cutbacks or compact administration in the Upper Division States. It would only be implemented if it is determined to be achievable and worthwhile for each of the Upper Division States.
