yeah lots are...in fact the water is already at a level that has reduced the electrical output of the turbines. They are still producing but not at full capacity. Not looking good out there.
Sure, much of the western U.S. is on the verge of going dark and shutting down and leaving people without water. But on the bright side...
I understand the sentiment. Some of that water (and electricity generated by the Big HD) goes to California and for years they have actively crushed efforts to increase their water reserves. They have reservoirs that have been waiting to be finished since the 1980's. They also don't capture snow melt like they should, choosing instead to let it run out to the ocean. You would think at some point it would be "agreements be damned", either do your share or we cut you off when it comes to water and electricity going to the Nutcase State. From the looks of those pictures @Singlestack Wonder posted it looks like you can't even get watercraft in there anymore. When I crossed the Hoover Dam the water was almost to the top of those towers. Maybe we should also chunk some of the other environmental regulations that prevents the flow of water down to Lake Mead.my understanding anyone who takes a detector to Meade gets arrested.
the people in charge there can all turn to dust along with the lake imo
We found a couple out behind Henderson in the 70s not a word in the paper! Editor said, 'It's so common we don't cover it. Not newsworthy."I,m really surprised that only 4 have been found given the proximity to Las Vegas and the popularity of disposing of rival gang members in deep water at the time!
