Danny33 I used to run into one of the ladies that worked in the water control offices for Clark Co . Its been a while but its all politics as I remember .
Lake POwell is by now or soon to be a river again.

I used to have a couple of web sites about the water shed this side of the Rockies...lots of interesting stuff was going on! I have Friends iin Arizona , another story ! Gotta love it.

bobmcgov Yah, Mead is at about 50% full pool. Reclamation is sticking a new 'soda straw' in because the existing one is nearly out of the water, preventing diversion to the Imperial Valley and California municipalities. We're having a good snowpack year in the central Rockies (for a change); problem is, all that runoff and more is spoken for by the senior rights holders. So unless a new compact is ratified, Mead won't get to keep any of it. Negotiations continue.

Likewise, we on the Atlantic side of the Divide are faring okay for snowpack. But our reservoirs, which serve the Platte Rivers, will have to release what they impound -- probably by midsummer. Some of them are below 25% capacity. It may take years of heavy mountain snows to discharge our water debts; we can't hold any water until those obligations are met. Sadly, the allotments were fixed during a period of historically heavy streamflows; the mountain states are left with quotas they can't fill.


Lowest of all on the water-rights totem pole, our local lake is deeply screwed. EVERYBODY get their crack at North Platte water before it does. That's why the concrete boat ramp ends twenty vertical feet above high tide. What's interesting, tho, is the ranchette development going in on the lake's north side. The land brokers use Lake Hattie access as a selling point -- but that lake is on a fast track to "not there no more." I'm wondering if the developer will plunk down some cash and buy back some downstream shares from Nebraska farmers. Doubt it, given the price of corn and how many thousands of acre feet it would take to raise the lake level.

Danny33 That sucks.. Transom splitting!
I did the deep at the scuba park . The Mcgeger was 100' at the deck.
I was stiil there for the other marina move and the paddel wheel cruise dock.
I missit down there. Spent a lot of time on the lake and all the mountains around there. The sierrias in Cal ,Death Valley , S.Utah.. and the Gran Canyon Was my other homes and Red Rock .

The Extream cold is the hard part in the interrior of Alaska>

Yeah Danny moving to Hemingway, the batch Plant is sticking up 25 feet above the water(standing on the shoreline below) that was my deepwater dive at 100 feet. last summer i could still cruise the dink over the batch plant and see it 5' below. my bud was cruising over it and his rudder hit the concrete circle splitting his transom from the deck. very nasty.

Boasun The water is pouring out into the ocean. That is where it is going along with filling all of various towns' reservoirs for drinking water as necessary.
