One of the most important reservoirs in the western U.S. is dealing with record-low water levels due to drought.
- Lake Mead, a reservoir created by Hoover Dam along the Colorado River, has dropped to 1,071 feet above sea level - the lowest point since its creation in the 1930's.
- Much of the western U.S. has struggled with drought in recent years, leading to California wildfires and severe water restrictions in states like Nevada and Utah.
- How concerned are you about environmental issues like these? Is it a cyclical thing, or a one-way move caused by climate change?
