Lake Mead

According to the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Lake Mead's water level has dropped more than 70 feet since January 2000. Las Vegas has been experiencing a drought for as long as I've lived here (six years). Here you can compare the natural water level against where it stands today. No wonder we can only water our lawns at certain times of the day and on certain days of the week!
