Footage shows low water mark at biggest US reservoir as shortage declared

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Footage shows low water mark at biggest US reservoir as shortage declared” – below is their description.

Officials have declared a dire water shortage at Lake Mead, the US’s largest reservoir, triggering significant water cuts in Arizona and other western states.

The US Bureau of Reclamation’s first ever declaration of a ‘tier 1’ shortage represents an acknowledgment that after a 20-year drought, the reservoir that impounds the Colorado River at Hoover Dam has receded to its lowest levels since it was created in the 1930s.
