They're going to cut off Arizona's agriculture while thousands of new homes continue to be built in Phoenix suburbs and even more thousands in Las Vegas. This is the first step, the next step if Lake level continues to drop - and EVERYBODY expects that will be the case - is to take measures that will leave home water taps dry (probably on a rotating basis). The next drop in water level - strongly implied as to be expected - will result in a complete loss of generator function - i.e., no more electricity. There goes Vegas, Phoenix, and lotsa smaller locales. Oh yeah, and home values.

Re: Federal Government declares water shortage for Southwest, Lake Mead level drops below threshold
Cape Town had this problem when the high-IQ African National Congress-dominated Parliament in Pretoria reacted negatively to an absolutely necessary construction project. The project would have been a much larger dam for the western Cape to capture more of the seasonal rains (important factoid here - down there the rains come in 7-year cycles, seven wet years followed by seven dry years). The ANC response was - hold your breath - that a much larger dam as proposed would leave more concrete surface exposed during the dry years, thus embarrassing the ANC. Yah, as they say in Afrikaans. They turned it down and it was left to France and as I recall, the Netherlands to put together offshore desalination facilities for Cape Town on a provisional basis pending a long-term solution.

There's been talk of a desalination plant or two for the Southwest but these take time and money to be put in place. Looks like another Afghanistan here, not well thought-out.

I never understood WHY they grew water hungry COTTON in the deserts of Arizona!!??

WTF!!

If you are going to grow anything in a desert at least grow something that is hard to grow in a normal climate location (like the Imperial Valley just down the road and across the state line farms vegetables, NOT cotton of all things).

Growing water hungry COTTON in that water resource poor location? ... a fit of insanity and greed.

Re: Federal Government declares water shortage for Southwest, Lake Mead level drops below threshold
the obvious nightmare question is - when the generators at Hoover Dam cannot produce any electricity, what is Joe Biden's plan when faced with tens of millions of people in 120-degree heat have NO power and if that is the case, at least rotating periods of NO WATER?

It takes 30 inches of water to raise a crop of cotton.

And they do that in a desert that gets 6 inches of rain a year.

you're not suggesting that there's corruption in Arizona? lol, I've been staying here for a few years now and I can honestly say that nothing would surprise me about the Government here. Nothing.

They can have water brought in. It may end up costing more than gasoline though. I have a friend who lives in the Owens Valley, and he has his water trucked in.

Also, no one mentioned all the development in Utah. They take the river water closer to the source. All kinds of new golf courses and stuff like that.

I warned my friends in Cali and Vegas about this exact scenario fifteen years ago. Now I have a river in my back yard.

Perhaps building cities in the middle of the desert wasn't such a good idea?

I was just about to say I like the idea of using dehumidifier technology being used to produce water on a large scale. In Florida it makes over two gallons an hour. I understand the technology needs to be vastly improved.
