Question:
A couple weeks ago the Scripps Institution of Oceanography released a report. Their conclusion is a prediction of a 50 / 50 chance Lake Mead could run dry by 2021. Also, in their report is a 50 / 50 chance of shutting down the power generation at Hoover Dam by 2017. This brings us to this week’s Reader Poll question. Do you think shutting down the water supply to southern California should occur to preserve Lake Mead?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I think the water should be monitored and allow less water to be sent to southern california, thus preserving the lake.  Bonnie A.  CA

It should at least be cut down some - if the reports of the lake running dry are true.  James Heinzen  Reeseville, WI

if shutting down the water supply at lake mead to california will save it do it.  jim miller  worcester ma

All states along the Colorado River Basin should take a long look at the affects of continued drought. All are stakeholders and will be impacted if the lakes along the river continue to drop. Southern Nevada will be greatly impacted due to the fact that the #1 intake is near the surface now and if we lose it, we will lose 1/2 of our water capacity. SNWA is trying to get a third intake into the lake at a lower elevation to forestall this but it is an additional cost rate payers will have to pay.  Doug Oliverius  Las Vegas

 I feel shutting down the water supply to southern California should be next to last on the list of options in saving Lake Mead. President Hoover got involved in creating the Hoover Dam and this issue can have optimal financing for a fair resolution if you get Federal Funds involved in the process to the solution of saving Lake Mead from vanishing. The area from a East Coast residents point-of-view has significant historical value and cannot be lost. Make the odds better!  Larry Strehl  Tampa/Florida

It is time for California to own up to the polution and problems they cause other states and water usage is just another problem they over use.  I think putting them on a rationing basis and see if they can turn so of that perfect living conditions into reality.  Norm S.  Washington.
