Hoover Dam’s lake Mead hits lowest water level




Now they say nature has a way of telling  its story in a more powerful way than  words  the watermark around lake mead is a  graphic illustration of just  how much has changed in the united  states largest reservoir  lake mead was created on colorado river  along the arizona nevada border  it is crucial to water supply of 25  million people  including the cities of los angeles san  diego  tuscan and las vegas not only this the  this the hoover dam generates  hydroelectric power to serve 1.3 million  people  in the states of nevada arizona and  california however the water levels of  the lake have now hit  their lowest level in recent history  you're like me we're experiencing  obviously low low water levels that we  haven't experienced since the dam was  built  it's been this level before but is when  the water was rising we've been close to  this level last like five or six years  ago  but we didn't we're going to a new  historic look  a white bathtub ring on the lakes shows  marks how much water has retreated  over time this has added to concerns  about the water supply at a time when  the western united states remains in the  grips of a mega drought  since 2000 the water level has dropped  140 feet  and according to the researchers the  water will continue to recede for at  least the next two years  the pressure is now on farmers to find  different ways to  irrigate and residents to be water wise.
