I just visited Hoover dam and noticed that the overflow channels on each side of the dam have been dry and unused for years. The drought in the West continues unabated and all dammed lakes in the region are well below their normal water levels. Experts predict that the situation will worsen and some cities (like ours), are even are hoping to convince citizens to finance the construction of a 100 mile long water pipe from Lake Powell to assure that rising populations will not go thirsty. The Colorado River can no longer meet growing needs for potable water, but the politicians will not listen.
