Learn Firsthand about Drought on the Colorado River
As 2016 began, Lake Mead’s level of almost 1,082 feet was a scant seven feet above the first trigger point for a shortage determination for the year. Thus, Arizona and Nevada barely escaped seeing their water supplies cut back this year.
But there is an 18 percent probability of a shortage in 2017.
With the Colorado River suffering through a 16-year dry period, drought-response activities have become the standard in water management in the Lower Basin states of Arizona, California and Nevada.
Our annual Lower Colorado River tour brings you face-to-face with the water managers implementing these measures to minimize impacts to cities, farms and the environment.
Join us March 2-4 for an unparalleled look into one of America’s most iconic rivers where you will experience a private tour of Hoover Dam and see the bathtub ring from record low water levels.
Your expert instructors include Keith Scoular of Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. who has worked on the river for decades, as well as key personnel from local, state and federal agencies.
