Earlier this week, water agencies from Arizona, California and Nevada, along with the Department of the Interior, announced a new effort to invest up to $200 million in projects over the next two years to keep Lake Mead from dropping to critically low levels. The agreement, signed during the Colorado River Water Users Association’s annual conference this week, aims to add 500,000 acre-feet of additional water to Lake Mead in both 2022 and 2023 by conserving water across the Lower Colorado River Basin.
