Abstract

A 20-year Colorado River drought continues and Lake Mead draws down. As Lake Mead falls through 8 elevation tiers to 1,020 feet (5.7 million acre-feet [maf]), releases drop and mandatory water conservation targets grow to 1.375 maf per year (USBR, 2019). How will different reservoir inflows, releases, and additional water conservation efforts beyond mandatory targets speed or slow Lake Mead draw down, stabilization, and recovery?
