PHOENIX — Lake Mead, the nation's largest reservoir, continues to decline so rapidly it will operate at a Level 2a Shortage Condition beginning in 2023, the Department of Interior announced on Tuesday.

It is the second year in a row that deep cuts will be implemented to shore up the Colorado River system as prescribed in the 2019 Drought Contingency Plan which was agreed to by the seven states and Mexico that rely on the water.

The lower basin states of Arizona, Nevada, California, and the country of Mexico fall under the tier 2a plan.

With junior priority, Arizona is set to lose the most — 592,000 acre-feet, or 21%, of its annual allotment in this round of cuts. The loss nearly wipes out the allotment for agricultural users in Pinal County and is expected to impact some municipal users.

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and the real archive lives off of headline news
