    The focus area for this Lower Rio Grande Basin Study (Basin Study) is comprised of the Lower Rio Grande River Basin, which extends from Fort Quitman, Texas, along the U.S./Mexico border, to the Gulf of Mexico (figure 1). The study was conducted in partnership with the Rio Grande Regional Water .   Reclamation released the Lower Rio Grande Basin Study that evaluated the impacts of climate change on water demand and supply imbalances along the Rio Grande from Fort Quitman, Tex., to the Gulf.
