    Living in Vegas, this hits home. It's where we get our water from. Why is this happening? Simple. Too many people demanding something that has never been available in great quantities. The same thing going on here that's going on in California.

    Keep it up and we'll see a lot more of these:

    San Francisco gets a lot of water from Lake Berryessa up in Napa valley. While I was at Mare Island for an overhaul, they had an 18 month drought. The lake's level dropped over 70 feet. People with docks had to stake ladders to the lake bottom and climb down well over a hundred feet to get to their boats.

    But don't worry. I'm sure this will be offset by new water supplies from what had been snow and ice up north. Right?

    Lake Mead is getting smaller because too many people are using it? Ridiculous! Everyone knows humans have zero impact on the earth, it's resources, or the environment! :mad:

    i give two hoots if the water is gone, I don't live there. It will turn back into a river like it was before the dam went in.
