In AZ, monsoons are to the desert what snow is to ski resorts. The expanding population has caused a 108 foot drop in the Desert Oasis, Lake Mead. At this time it is not known if the BLM will be able to meet AZ, NV an CA water needs this year. Many in the desert take our water for granted. Fissures are growing at an alarming rate. (Fissures are cracks in the earth caused by the depletion of ground water.)
Unfortunately as our population grows so will our own demise. Unless we devise a way to conserve, we are in a loosing battle.
