Arizona and Nevada Are Confronted With Yet Another Round of Water Reductions.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation said Tuesday that the ongoing drought continues to threaten the water levels of the Colorado River. This means that Arizona and Nevada will have to deal with more cuts to their water supplies.

In June, the water level in Lake Mead in Nevada, which is the largest reservoir in the country, hit a record low.

Lake Mead was put in a Tier-2a shortage, which means that Arizona, Nevada, and parts of Mexico will have to use less water. It’s the first time the lake has been declared to that designation.

The federal government has predicted how much water will be in reservoirs over the next 24 months. The new rules will go into effect in January 2023.
