So this sort of seems like a win-win. Mexico needs a place to store their water and Lake Mead needs…well, more water in it!
10 days ago, the U.S. and Mexico agreed that Mexico could store as much as 1.5 million acre-feet of water in Lake Mead over five years and that’s enough to raise the lake by as much as 15 feet. Sounds good!
The other upside for us is that Mexico joins California, Arizona and Nevada in sacrificing some of their water allotment during shortages…so that will help out even more if we have a wicked drought.
