First-Ever Mandatory Water Cutbacks Next Year Along the Colorado River For Arizona, Nevada and Mexico
Arizona, Nevada and Mexico will be required to take less water from the Colorado River for the first time next year.

This decision has been taken to keep enough water in Lake Mead to reduce the risk of a crash.


It’s not because there’s a good snowpack that the drought is over! Projections are showing showing that as of Jan. 1, the level of Lake Mead will sit just below a threshold that triggers some cuts. And this is also why the federal Bureau of Reclamation activated the first-ever mandatory reductions in water deliveries last Thursday.

Arizona and Nevada agreed to leave a portion of their water allotments in the reservoir under a landmark deal with California called the Lower Basin Drought Contingency Plan, which the states’ representatives signed at Hoover Dam in May.

California agreed to contribute water at a lower trigger point if the reservoir continues to fall. And Mexico agreed under a separate accord to start contributing to help prop up Lake Mead, which is now 39 percent full.

Big time drought


In the Valley of the Sun it'll be 115 tomorrow. That's a June temperature and no monsoon season this year to speak of..yet. Maybe in September 2 months behind schedule?

Not surprised- probably should have been done years ago. The Colorado in southern AZ is just a wide stream.

Five stars for the find. This will have a huge effect on crops, unfortunately.

We need a mega engineering project.

In the Mississippi River system as well as the Brazos, Sabine, etc. we have massive floods every year.

The Continental Divide in Southern New Mexico is only 2000 ft. altitude or so.

We need a system of reservoirs, dams, and big aqueducts to ship the excess water to the Plains and West of the Rockies where it is needed.

We could open vast areas to farming if they only had more water.

The world needs FOOD and we can supply it.

In order to pump so much water, we could use abundant natural gas as the fuel, although I favor LFTRs (Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactors). In some areas, wind power is a viable option.

When I lived in West Texas I met a lot of RICH farmers who had adequate irrigation water. However, most of the land was scrub brush only suitable for grazing.

Record snow pack, damns all over the country overflowing or worse.... and 60 days later, this?
You can stand me up at the gates of hell…. I won’t back down.
