A Day of Reckoning is Coming and Schoon on Colorado River Basin Water Usage
"A climate-induced reckoning is playing out on the Colorado River.

Water levels in crucial river reservoirs have fallen so drastically this year that even those measures, which many hoped would shore up water resources enough to squeak through until the drought broke, fell far short. On June 14, the Department of the Interior made a stark ask: Within 60 days, the river-dependent states needed to come up with a plan to make the major trims. That deadline has almost arrived; an announcement is expected Tuesday.

Such deep cuts have never been made across the entire river. The magnitude, and the speed with which they need to be achieved, is completely unprecedented, says Felicia Marcus, a western water expert at Stanford University.

“It’s not a surprise, and it’s not yet the apocalypse, but we have to be clear-eyed that we’ve been gambling for at least the last 10 years. And so far, that bet’s not paying off,” she says."

Re: A Day of Reckoning is Coming and Schoon on Colorado River Basin Water Usage
The federal government announced Tuesday the Colorado River will operate in a Tier 2 shortage condition for the first time starting in January as the West’s historic drought has taken a severe toll on Lake Mead.

According to a new projection from the Department of the Interior, Lake Mead’s water level will be below 1,050 feet above sea level come January — the threshold required to declare a Tier 2 shortage starting in 2023.

Lake Mead’s level has been around 1,040 feet this summer, just 27% of its full capacity.

The Tier 2 shortage means Arizona, Nevada and Mexico will have to further reduce their Colorado River use beginning in January. California will not yet have cuts made to the water it receives from the Colorado River. (The threshold for California’s first cut is 1,045 feet in January.)

Of the impacted states, Arizona will face the largest cuts — 592,000 acre-feet — or about 21% of the state’s yearly allotment of river water.

“Every sector in every state has a responsibility to ensure that water is used with maximum efficiency. In order to avoid a catastrophic collapse of the Colorado River System and a future of uncertainty and conflict, water use in the Basin must be reduced,” Interior’s assistant secretary for water and science Tanya Trujillo said in a statement.

Interior’s projections show that by January of next year, Lake Mead’s water surface elevations will be at 1,047.61 feet. Meanwhile, Lake Powell’s water surface elevation will be at 3,521.84 feet – 32 feet above minimum power pool, or the amount needed to generate electricity from hydroelectric operations.

Separately, US Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Camille Touton and other federal water officials said they are prepared to take additional administrative actions needed to protect the Colorado River, Lake Powell and Lake Mead from falling to “critically low levels.”

Earlier this summer, Touton set a deadline of mid-August for the seven Colorado River states to come up with a plan to cut as much as 25% of their river water usage. It became apparent early this week that those negotiations have stalled, which led some lawmakers and state water officials to call on the federal government to take aggressive action on their own.

Interior has not yet outlined next steps in Touton’s demand for the states’ plan.

Chicken shyte's

Feds won’t step in and make massive Colorado River water cuts — yet
From CNN's Ella Nilsen

The US Bureau of Reclamation will not yet act on a demand for Colorado River states and stakeholders to come up with a plan to cut up to 25% of their water usage — 2 to 4 million acre-feet per year, annually — to stabilize the river basin. That plan would have been in addition to the mandatory cuts announced on Tuesday.

Bureau chief Camille Touton made the demand for the plan at a Senate hearing in June and gave river stakeholders a deadline of Aug. 15. Touton said at the time that if states failed to come up with a plan, the federal government would do it for them.

Instead, administration officials said they are beginning that process.

Touton said at a news conference Tuesday that her agency is “starting the process,” but she did not specify any new deadlines that might be set for states to come up with a plan for the drastic cuts.

Re: A Day of Reckoning is Coming and Schoon on Colorado River Basin Water Usage
Here's how the Bureau of Reclamation says it will battle shrinking water levels

Tanya Trujillo, the assistant secretary for water and science at the Bureau of Reclamation, said the agency is taking several immediate actions in both the upper and lower Colorado River basin to ensure the water is being used efficiently.

Shortly after the bureau announced the results of its annual forecast on the Colorado River and the country's largest reservoir, Lake Mead, Trujillo said everyone has a responsibility to safeguard the water system. The report showed water levels dropping as the region suffers from a multi-year drought.

Federal investments and expanded resources now available through climate provisions in big bills like the Inflation Reduction Act, which President Biden is expected to sign Tuesday, are critical, Trujillo said.

Without investments now, she said the Colorado River will "face a future of uncertainty."

Now, Trujillo said the bureau is "moving forward with several efforts at the same time."

This means setting into motion short-term operational actions while also developing innovative strategies to help communities combat the conditions created by climate change in a more long-term way.

According to a statement, here are some of the things the Bureau of Reclamation says it will do:

The Upper Basin:

-Evaluate whether the Glen Canyon Dam can be modified to "allow water to be pumped or released from below currently identified critical and dead pool elevations," it said in a statement. Remember: a "dead pool" is when when a reservoir isn’t high enough to release water downstream through a dam.
-Work with basin states and tribes to release water from the Upper Basin reservoirs to help "enhance" elevation levels at Lake Powell.
-The bureau said it will invest in voluntary agreements with stakeholders and states to further conserve the system.

The Lower Basin:

-Take administrative actions to define how Lake Mead will operate at elevations below 1,025 feet. The goal of this is to reduce the risk of the reservoir "declining to critically low levels," the statement said.
-Create new initiatives that would make sure urban and agricultural water is being use efficiently.
-The agency said it will come up with ways to "address evaporation, seepage and other system losses in the Lower Basin."
-Through studies, it will evaluate if modifications could be made to Hoover Dam to allow water to be pumped from lower elevations. Like the plan for the Glen Canyon Dam in the Upper Basin, the bureau wants to see if it is possible to pump water from below "dead pool" levels.

This is the current status of the West's drought
From CNN’s Brandon Miller

Around 70% of the West is in drought conditions as of last Thursday, according to the US Drought Monitor. Nearly 300,000 square miles of that — an area larger than any single state in the continental US — is considered in "extreme” or “exceptional” drought, the most intense categories.

These designations indicate areas of major crop loss, shortage of water in reservoirs, streams and wells requiring restrictions and eventually creating water emergencies, per the Drought Monitor’s website.

It's a drought.

And not only is it a megadrought which have been recorded in the west in the 1800's but a huge water event could strike California.

HUUGE atmospheric river could last a month dumping over 100 inches.

yes, that happened in the 1800's also.

Long before any conspiracies over weather modification or sabotage.
