A new report indicates that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation may issue a Water Shortage Declaration that would usher in water cuts to primarily two states.
According to a report from Interesting Engineering, in August, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation may, for the first time in history, issue a Level 1 Water Shortage Declaration that would usher in mandatory cuts in water consumption.
In the last week, the Bureau released a 24-month long projection for the water contained in the Colorado River where it stated that both of the U.S.'s two largest reservoirs are sitting at 35.53% of its full capacity (Lake Powell), and 42.97% of its full capacity (Lake Mead). Additionally, models have indicated that by June 2021, the water level at Lake Mead will fall by 1,075 feet, which will trigger the Level 1 Water Shortage Declaration affecting Arizona, Nevada, and California.
