The article focuses on the plan of several developers to construct reservoirs some states in the U.S. Among the states to avail the water storage projects include the 20 miles east of Yakima, Washington to be developed by Black Rock Reservoir, the West Northern Colorado and in Sacramento, California. However, some river advocates say that Black Rock and other projects which had been billed as environmental friendly promise far more than what they can deliver, while, the high costs involved may put an end to the projects before it even starts.
