Lake Mead, a lifeline for water in Los Angeles and the West, ‘unrecognizable’ as it tips toward crisis

Lake Mead, a lifeline for 25 million people and millions of acres of farmland in California, Arizona, Nevada and Mexico, made history when it was engineered 85 years ago, capturing trillions of gallons of river water and ushering in the growth of the modern West.[less than 50%]

nova glass

Let's face some facts in 1980 the population of Las Vegas was 146,000 today it's 662,000 , The population of Las Angelas was 9,300,00 today it's 12,9000,000.

With just these 2 cities that's a rise of 4.1 million more people drinking the water. More farms that need irrigation
illwork


While many are trying to blame climate change, I blame both legal and illegal migration on the water shortage in the Southwest USA. One more sign that resources are finite and should be protected from illegal immigration.

Politicians that don't understand this should be voted out.

I'm not so sure you know what you're talking about OP.

California's farmland is not irrigated from lake Mead. Maybe a bit of it near LA or sand Diego. But 95+ percent of it is irrigated from the Sierra Nevada snow melt.

There's 1400 dams lining the Sierra Nevada collecting the snow melt and an aquaduct system that takes water all over the state.

10% of California water is used for household use. 5% for industrial. And 90% for farmland irrigation. California has invested 10s of Billions giving farmers equipment to prevent wasting water. As such the California uses the least amount of water and grows the most amount of food per acre than anywhere in the world.

As much as I hate that state it isn't the cause of lake Mead drought.
50% of the water in lake Mead gets dumped in the ocean. And it wasn't always that way. Look elsewhere.

And California grows shit for people all over the world. You've eaten something from California today ..assuming you actually eat fruits and vegetables and don't just eat potato chips and soda.

Re: How much of Lake Meads water shortage is due to Migration
immigration would be easy to stop. just fine the shit out of anyone hiring undocumented workers.

if you knew you would go out of business by hiring undocumented workers, you would not hire them.

no jobs no immigration!

but in the end the shortage is due to the drought not usage. there would be plenty otherwise.

also they could stop people from having grass for their yards and use native plants and ground cover that uses less water.

They are letting water out of the dams.... thats whats going on here. If they would stop their multi year fish population studies, then it would fill back up quickly.

I live in Northern AZ, and we are getting tons of rain... flooding even.... haven't even watered my garden in almost two weeks.

Migration the Southwest, overpopulating and overfarming? All of it.

The Almond industry, among a select few, plant crops that are heavily water dependent. Gotta have that Almond milk ya know. Corporate farming has contrubuted to this crisis more than regular citizens.

The only way this crisis is resolved is people and farms begin to move out of the Southwest, easing demand.
The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.

Frosty Woolridge has been screaming this from the mountain tops for a few decades. He has been warning America that if illegal immigration was not curtailed America will run out of water and resources. He also states that white people will become a minority in most of ours lifetimes. He was absolutely correct. He called it "The Unarmed Invasion."

LOL, the colorado river is fine... it doesn't make it to the ocean anymore (or not year round anyway) ever since we started the big dams, etc... but thats not something that should be unexpected.... if we don't want to use dams anymore fine, but stop acting like its climate change.

You are correct. I used to sit on the Board of Directors for a water municipality in Colorado. There was once a time when California had almost more right to Colorado water than Colorado did.

States that can't supply enough water to their land developments should not depend on other states to send it to them.

Las Vegas is fine, they've managed their water well since the very beginning -- building a city in the desert kinda forces you to be good water managers.

It's mainly California and to a lesser extent Arizona that are the main problems.
