Quote
Lake Mead, the reservoir created by the Hoover Dam, that feeds water to 25 million people across Western states, is historically low. On June 9th, the water level dipped to 1,071.57 feet above sea level, narrowly beating a record low last set in 2016.

The lake surface has dropped 140 feet since 2000, leaving the reservoir just 37 percent full. With such a dramatic drop, officials expect to declare an official water shortage for the first time ever. That could affect water and energy that Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam deliver to Arizona, California, and Nevada.

Running your country like a reality show is starting to seem like a bad idea.  I have read about development in AZ and it's jaw dropping how much these places are burying their heads in the (expanding) sand.

What is the cause of the drop?
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I bet they still water golf courses in Arizona.
