Water cutbacks coming to Arizona
The “bathtub ring” at Lake Mead has become a familiar sight. The water level in the lake is the lowest it has been since the Hoover Dam, which created the lake, was built in the 1930s. Those low levels have been decades in the making. … The record low levels mean that later this month the federal government is expected to declare an official water shortage on the Colorado River which feeds Lake Powell. That shortage declaration will mean a 20% cut in Arizona’s allotment of Colorado River water.
