Yep. And the Colorado river does not have a lot of water to spare that is not already used by others.

This blog has a good summary of why the entire proposal is pretty dubious: http://euanmearns.com/the-hoover-dam-pumped-hydro-proposal/

You seem to think this process would take water out of the river. Nope, it just recirculates it to provide more clean power. During drought periods in mid summer you simply turn the pumps off and revert to the existing system until the rain returns and the snow melts.
