Lake Mead could drop to its lowest point ever in 2025, new projections have estimated. The latest “most probable” projections from the Bureau of Reclamation estimate that Lake Mead could reach water levels as low as 1,040.77 feet in September 2025. This is the lowest the lake has ever been. It has reached this point before, in July 2022. It is the lowest the reservoir has been since it was first constructed in the 1930s.
