Lake Mead Officially Drops under 1075 feet. Possibly Triggering Water Restrictions
Will it continue dropping, or will it start rising in the coming days? 1075 feet is an important elevation which will trigger a stage one out of three water restrictions. Hopefully more info will come out in the coming days. This is the lowest Lake Mead has been since it was filled.

Sitting at 1,074.91 feet above sea level.


Lake Mead has officially entered Water Rationing stage 1 of 3. With an elevation under 1,075 feet, which triggers major supply cuts to Arizona. If it stays below this level by January 2016, supply cuts to Arizona will be made. At stage 2, the power turbines will fail to produce power. At stage 3, the Hoover Dam will almost become a "Dead Pool", which means the water is below the Air Intake towers and no more water can be sent downstream.

That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

Isaiah 19:5
The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry.

Isaiah 19:6
The canals will stink; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up. The reeds and rushes will wither,

Jeremiah 14:5
Even the doe in the field deserts her newborn fawn because there is no grass.

Joel 1:10
The fields are ruined, the ground is dried up; the grain is destroyed, the new wine is dried up, the olive oil fails.

Joel 2:3
Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste-- nothing escapes them.

Read 'Cadillac Desert', the timing of the American west being built on an anomaly, an unusual wet cycle and it's now returning to more normal conditions.

Results? Places like Vegas, Phoenix, SoCal are fucked.

Vegas will NOT run out of water. California guzzles 10x out of Lake mead what Las Vegas does.

I can't post a direct link to the RJ story, so find it by googling 'WHY Vegas will not run out of water' and search in the past month (June 13, 2015). The search phrase is NOT the title of the story, but gets the story to the top of search if using the time search of within the past month.

A couple of facts rephrased from the story, and I am NOT quoting. In 1922 there was an act created called 'Colorado River Compact', which divided the water to Ca, AZ and NV. Nevada was to be alloted 300k acre feet/yr (less than 2% of Colorado River water). Since Las Vegas recycles all its sewer water, it only uses 225k acre feet after recycling the waste water.

The problem will be California's and Arizona's, not Nevada. It appears as though once they use up what they were allotted, their faucet gets shut off? Las Vegas has up to 8 years of water in storage even if the Colorado River completely dried up, which won't happen as long as the Rocky Mountains exist.

Oh wait I just realized that while they were busy printing fake money so they can inflate the prices of their fake assets they forgot about the water.

But, as I said, never fear they will print more water.

Right now, 600 feet beneath the lake's glassy blue surface, a massive custom-built tunnel-boring machine -- almost as long as two football fields and heavier than four 747's -- is plowing inch by tedious inch through wet, fractured bedrock. Spanning nearly 24 feet in diameter, its rock-gnawing face is alive with the movement of 44 disc cutters and 23 knives.

The Big Gulp-style tunnel it is boring will eventually intersect with a concrete-and-steel riser installed in the bottom of the lake, like a drain. Two intake pipes already carry water from Lake Mead to Las Vegas, about 25 miles to the west. Known as the Third Straw, Intake No. 3 will reach 200 feet deeper into the lake -- and keep water flowing for as long as there's water to pump.


Expected to be operational summer 2015.

Urine flows downhill. Vegas sewage flows from west to east.

'..most of the reclaimed water, called effluent, is released into the Las Vegas Wash. A portion is diverted to Wetlands Park, golf courses, parks and businesses. Along the 10-mile journey to Lake Mead, water from the Flamingo center mixes with water from treatment plants operated by Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson.'

THE LEVEL IS FEDERALLY CONTROLLED!
Federal water managers let the closely watched and regulated surface level at Lake Mead go to a new record low overnight, before guiding it back above a crucial drought shortage trigger point

The government controls everything.... Does it surprise you that this is a manufactured event?
