"Welcome back at 26 passed, this is America in the morning. It's officially coming to a close, President Biden's going to end the nation's coronavirus emergencies. Ed Donahue reports, the president is telling Congress the national emergency and public health emergency declarations will end may 11th, nearly three years after they were first declared. They were in effect when Joe Biden took office. We will get through this. We will defeat this pandemic. The change will restructure virus response, treating it as an endemic threat to public health, manage through normal authority of government agencies. House Republicans want the emergencies to end right away and are getting ready to start investigations into the government's virus response. Ed Donahue, Washington. 6 western states that rely on water from the Colorado River have agreed on a model to dramatically cut water use. But it's been Thomas reports, one major state has decided they would rather submit their own plan to cut back on consumption. California gets the largest allocation of water from the Colorado, the river and its tributaries wind through 7 states from Wyoming, Utah and Colorado to Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, and into Mexico. Serving 40 million people and a $5 billion a year agriculture industry. The Clinton canyon and Hoover dams, two mammoth power producers sit on the river with gigantic reservoirs behind, like Powell and Lake mead have reached historic lows reflecting the stress on the river amid a more than two decade drought. Along with all that demand and consequent overuse, the bureau of reclamation called on the states to propose ways to conserve two to 4 million acre feet of water, they missed the deadline, but have now come up with a plan. California, however, has not signed on, saying it will submit its own model for water reductions. I'm Ben Thomas

From Cornwall, England to Lake mead, Arizona to just about every tourist destination in Italy, voters is suggesting that due to too many tourists don't be one, including Lake Tahoe. More people have moved there since the beginning of the pandemic, especially. And when you add to that people who travel seasonally, it's just more than the infrastructure of the area can handle. We're talking with Ryan schlitter at the climate center. And all of that traffic burning those fossil fuels, the wear and tear on the environment. It's certainly adding up. Don't visit though, that designation not warmly received at the Lake Tahoe visitors authority CEO Carol Chaplin. We're not saying don't come here. We're just saying, you know, be part of the solution. Are you able to come midweek? I think a lot of people work virtually and have that option. That works for the climate center. It's not as if we have to give up all of the beautiful locations that we want to see in the world or all of the vacations that we want to go on. We just want to do that in a way that's conscious of the impacts that we're having on the area. Like Lake Tahoe, Jim Taylor.

"And so we believe this is testament to the fact that you can grow your economy and your community while reducing water waste. To achieve this type of reduction, the water authority has launched several programs to encourage residential and commercial customers to cut back on their water usage. This includes financial incentives to replace thirsty grass with more water efficient landscaping. Or rebates on smart irrigation controllers. 60% of the water that we use in the valley is used outdoors. And that water is used once. So this water once it's gone, it's gone. Education and incentive programs are too important parts of the city's plan to get everyone on board. The third aspect is enforcement. We've been doing water waste investigations for the last 20 years. So we have folks, they call them water patrol cops. They go out and look for water waste violations. They need water that comes off your property onto the sidewalk or into the gutter is considered water waste, which is illegal. And so over the last 20 years, we've conducted about 250,000 water waste investigations. I've had the opportunity to join a water waste investigator on this morning patrol. Cameron Dunham is one of several investigators patrolling the city this morning. We entered a gated community in North Las Vegas shortly after 6 a.m.. So we're currently in a neighborhood that is not allowed to water today. After initially not coming across any violations, Cameron spots some water on off on the side of the road, as he investigates further, the sprinkler system suddenly turns on. These may be coming on right now. This is one that we can film right now, actually. Okay, so yeah, I can go ahead and film this violation right now. If the home hasn't had any previous violations, Cameron will simply leave a courtesy notice on the door to inform the property owner of the violation. While education is his main goal, fines for water waste violations can range from $80 to $5000 for repeat offenders. Cameron, who has been working as an investigator with the water authority for four years, says most people understand why the patrol is needed. They keep up with the news and they see what's going on with Lake mead with climate change. And I would say most people do get it. This is a very transient city. We have a lot of new people that come into. So a lot of people come from out of state. They have no idea. They see the car and they're like water patrol. I mean, what is that, you know? So we have to explain. But most people do appreciate our presence. We actually have a lot of people that stop and thank us for what we do because they understand that this is really important. The water level at Lake mead has dropped more than 150 feet over the past two decades. The Lake normally gets replenished by snowmelt from the Rocky Mountains that flows down the Colorado River valley. But less snowpack in the mountains means less water for Lake mead. The fact is we're taking more out than mother nature is putting in. And so if the who's every user on the river, every sector of user on the river to work cohesively to help drive down that water consumption. In addition to incentivizing and enforcing water conservation, the city more than 50 years ago created a return flow system to stretch its limited water supply even further. Every drop of water that hits a train inside a building in Clark county and southern Nevada is captured treated recycled and returned to Lake mead that allows us to extend a limited water supply. So leaving on a faucet or shower in your hotel room during your next visit to Vegas doesn't really impact the city's water supply. Much more important is reducing outdoor water usage. From increasing compliance to new stringent regulations. For us to continue to be able to thrive as a location, we're going to have to drive down what are you even more. The fact is there's no amount of water that we can conserve here and so that Nevada that will get us out of our drought. So it's going to take collective action from all of our partners to ensure that we're all water secure

"A man's determination to conquer the Colorado River when the Hoover Dam was built in Lake mead filled cheap federally subsidized water allowed farmers to grow pecans in New Mexico. Alfalfa and cotton in Arizona. Greens and citrus in California. And so a vigorous modern culture replaces that of a bygone age in the southwest. The wastes of strumming native growth become vast irrigated citrus farms. Well, that almost mythical river doesn't exist anymore, says Jack Schmidt, who runs the center for Colorado River studies at Utah state university. There have been warnings and fears about whether or not there was enough water before the scepter of climate change ever weird up. Schmidt says farmers in central Arizona particularly were always worn this day could come under the century old river law their last in line for irrigation in a mega drought. Ted cook manages the central Arizona project. It's a federal canal system built in the 60s, so Arizona farmers could tap into excess Colorado River water. We are two years or less away from not being able to get any water past the dam in Lake need It's pretty extraordinary. So something has to be done. Something's going to have to change or the southwest is going to lose their agriculture. What farmer will thelander is doing for now is planting a new desert crop called. It requires a quarter of the water that is traditional cotton and alfalfa do. So like I'm hoping on this crop right here that it's going to rain and then I don't water this for another three weeks because it's a desert crop and then while uli produces a natural desert rubber. Right now only 74 acres of the landers farm has been converted to it. But if the economics continue to work out and I think this could be a huge crop for the Southwest. A crop

"So let's get on with the show. Welcome everybody to the show. The bobbin sherry show with bob. Here's what I do. I talk a radio and sharing. And we were the most important women in the world. And now broadcasting from the palatial bobbin sherry studios is bombing sharing. Welcome, welcome to the bob and sherry show, it's nice to have you with us here. Yeah, we're just like you every day. 5 days a week, we go to work. Wouldn't it be great if you invented something, and then all you had to do was collect the money on your invention, right? You sell it to a bigger company, and every week you go out and there's a check in the mail and you don't have to do anything. That'll never happen to me and probably you're not you, either. Although you did invent something once. I forget what it was, but I have no ability in the invention area. And the fact that you don't remember it is just one more piece of evidence in the case of why inventing something really did not do anything for me. I mean, it's crazy. Not everybody who invents something gets rich off of it or even breaks even. But what we need to invent, if you want to invent mailbox money, you need to come up with like a really amazing app or piece of software, some kind of medical technology, and those three things, that's not going to happen for us, not here. Okay, tell me whether you would buy one or both of these two products that I just found. All right? The first one is for people who tend to get lost. GPS shoes. Created by a designer named Dominic Wilcox, the techie shoes include a sensor in the heel and LED lights on the top of the front of the shoe that light up and points you in the right direction. So if you are in a city that you're unfamiliar with and you've been out with clients or whatever and then you have to find you forgot where the hotel is. You just, I guess, with an app, you contact your shoe. And then your shoe will send you in the right direction. You have the little LED lights. So even if you're in kind of a dark street, you're lighting up, you can watch, you can watch your shoes take you home. I'm not buying this. And here's why. If it runs off of an app, why don't I just wake my phone up and have my navigation take me back to my hotel? Why do I need to wake my phone up to wake my shoes up to light the sidewalk to take me back to my hotel? I guess because somehow the shoes will point you in the right direction. And the navigation on my phone. Well, I guess it would. All right, well, all right, so I'm going to take this as a no. Here's the second one. It would take hours to enjoy a typical 12 course meal. Well, how about getting your hands on all in one, a 12 course meal in a can. The meal includes a cheese with sour dough bread, pickled Kobe beef, charred strawberry, ricotta ravioli with a soft L yolk, shiitake mushrooms, topped with filled peppers, halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe, risotto, ramps, prosciutto, and fresh Parmesan. Also. Oh, yeah. A little taste of onion soup, fresh thyme, roast, pork belly, pear, Ginger juice, as a palette cleanser, and they've also thrown in some rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens, and milk ice cream. To finish the whole thing off is actually a couple of other ingredients. And each course is pureed in a blender with gelatin and then poured into the can. Ew, no, are you telling me you want that ew? It sounds disgusting. I mean, is it in layers? Is it in layers? So you eat each person at all. Do you dump it into a pan heated up and then everything's just all at once on the spoon. It doesn't say, but according to this, I got this at fast company. According to this, you could take it with you wherever you go. If you're a hiker or something, I don't have to do anything but open the can. And I've got a 12 course meal, right? It sounds disgusting though, doesn't it? Maybe on a camping trip, you know, where it's this or like a raw hot dog and a clif bar. But once you how about on a plane on a plane, but you're eating everything cold or room temperature, right? Because if you dump it out of the can and heated, it's just one big hot mess. You're going to pass on that too. The GPS shoes, now I could see if you were like a trail runner and you would get out there and you'd be running in the Woods and you'd get that runner's high you hear about you're listening to music or whatever and you get a little bit off course. I could see I could see the GPS shoes for trailers. But what in the world are you going to be you're going to be looking down at your blinking shoes in Manhattan? No. No, no, no. But I can see, I can see some uses for that. Now, the 12 course meal in a can just seems like a stunt. Unless you're sending it to the space station. I know, like, some poor guys out there in the field, right? Yeah. But that's a good way of fancy MRE. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that's exactly what it is. That's exactly what it is. So anyway, good luck to all the inventors out there. We're very jealous of your abilities and, you know, we will never be that situation. All right, we got more into the news right around the corner, a whole lot more coming your way. This is bob and sherry. It's a bob and cherry off air podcast called the odd cast. Podcasting. Podcast. With stuff we wouldn't couldn't or shouldn't do on the regular show. Mom and cherry talk about where we go when we die. There's new information and proof that the soul is eternal. It's called a wow oh wow oh wow. The Bobb and cherry off air podcast, the oddcast. We got a big broadcast to do here. Get it now on the free bobbin cherry app, bob and cherry dot com or wherever you get your podcasts. Bob and sherry live tonight. At 7 p.m. eastern tonight. Live on the bobbin cherry Facebook page. Teachers spend their own money and time decorating their classrooms and making everything welcome and wonderful for the kids. And we want to help out a little bit. So you can nominate a teacher, maybe it's your child's teacher, friend or family member who's a teacher. If you're a teacher, you can nominate yourself to win some school supplies on a $100 Visa gift card to help get that classroom stocked. Any teacher of any grade is available eligible pre-K to college, go to BOB, AND, SH, ERI dot com, nominate that teacher, and let's get some school supplies into their hands. Bob and sherry dot com.

As the climate crisis gets worse, extreme weather will pose a rapidly growing danger to a rapidly growing number of communities. Put them together in one big package and give it the attractive name of the inflation reduction act. This bill will reduce inflationary pressures on the economy. In the end, it all came down to getting West Virginia senator Joe Manchin to sign on. This is fighting inflation. This is all about the absolute horrible position that people are in now because of the inflation cost. In senator Manchin's Republican colleagues like pat toomey of Pennsylvania can't believe he went along. It's a very significant corporate tax increase, mostly focused on manufacturers, which is a bad idea. It's combined with price controls on prescription drugs. I've been asking myself, what does Joe Manchin get out of this? But thus far, economists like Larry summers think the inflation reduction act may be just what the doctor ordered. I was glad to see the bill. I think it's going to reduce the rate of inflation because it's going to reduce deficits and demand over time because it's going to use the federal government's power to negotiate lower prices for pharmaceuticals and because it's going to increase.

"Watershed and groundwater. We already killed one river, the Santa Cruz, why should we contribute to killing a much larger river now? You've been doing this for years, so you've seen a crisis in the water situation long before, frankly, most people did. How are you feeling now? I'm definitely distressed because I don't see people waking up and taking significant action. As the reservoirs of Lake mead and Lake Powell are dropping very fast, people are still bickering about who should conserve water and they're trying to get water from elsewhere. My frustration is, why do that if we can't first take care of what we already have? Not even talking about the rivers. More rain falls on the surface area of Tucson in an average year of rainfall than the entire population of Tucson consumes of municipal water in a typical year. So you're saying the problem could be solved, you know, in theory, by living the way you live. By just catching the water. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. If people are freaked out, they're like, well, I don't want to go as far as that guy. Let me take it this way, 'cause it might not be for everyone. Yeah. What I'm promoting is let's make rainwater our primary water source. That is our free onsite water. And let's only use the groundwater and the Colorado River water as a backup source. You know, as a savings used in times of need, not the primary water that we're withdrawing around 24/7. You know, do you think that people in Phoenix, lots more people in Tucson are gonna have to start thinking about living this way? Oh yeah, absolutely. But if you start now while you've got all options on the table, you've got time to learn. It becomes easier. But it's still a lot of work and the tanks cost money. I can't imagine all 40 million people who rely on the Colorado River ever choosing to live the way that Brad

"Waste challenges and potential solutions. Subscribe to at scale wherever you get your podcasts. Two decades of drought driven by climate change means that reservoirs on the Colorado River are critically low. 40 million people in the southwest depend on the river for their water supply. Now, three states and the federal government have agreed to a $200 million deal in response. Alex Hager with member station K UNC in Colorado has been following this and Alex, we should explain the new agreement is specifically designed to preserve Lake mead and that's the big reservoir on the Colorado River that was created by the Hoover Dam. That is correct. Nevada, Arizona and California rely on Lake mead for both drinking water and also irrigating crops that end up on kitchen tables across the country. They've reached this agreement to try and keep more water in Lake mead over the next couple of years and the way they're going to do it is to pool their money and pay for some groups to use less, so that includes farmers, water agencies, and Native American tribes. It's a pretty notable deal for a few reasons. It is an unprecedented agreement that shows the scale of this unprecedented challenge and because states in the Colorado River are often competing for water. Those relationships can be pretty tense. It's not every day that these states agree on how to manage water or in this case decide to sacrifice and conserve some of it. Yeah. And so the idea is you mentioned is that they will pay people to use less water to try to keep Lake mead from dropping further and incentive program is that going to work. Well, it kind of depends on the drought this lasted for over two decades now and how much longer it's going to last. But the experts I talked to say, this is not at all a silver bullet. It's really a band aid measure to hold things together for a few years until there's a more permanent set of rules. Eric coon is a retired water district manager from Colorado. He's been following these issues for more than 40 years. I'm certain that everyone sort of understands that. This is sort of call it the low hanging fruit. It buys us time, but it doesn't solve the long-term problem. And the people who signed the deal, they were candid about the fact that it is not the be all and end all. They made a point that the collaboration behind this agreement, it's symbolic of the kind of spirit they're going to need going forward. You know, symbolic, but even so, given the impact of climate change and how many people depend on this river, still a really important deal. Yeah, it's an important first step, but it's in the face of this monumental challenge. Climate change is making the region hotter and drier and it's doing that quickly. At the same time, there's ever growing demand on the shrinking water supply. Becky Mitchell runs the state of Colorado's tap water agency. We have no choice but to get there. It may be an ugly road, it may be bumpy. There may be some issues along the way. But that is the only option. Mitchell was one of the people I talked to at a big annual conference of water users in Las Vegas last week, and there was a real tone of urgency there. The stakes to find a solution here are really high. They are figuring out how to divvy up a river that supplies homes and farms and businesses from Wyoming all the way down to Mexico. And even though there are some promising signs of collaboration in this agreement, the conference made it obvious that everyone is still trying to protect their individual interests. And there was some finger pointing to. And Alex, what is the role of the Native American tribes who depend on this river? Well, they don't specifically have a role in formulating this deal. And among the 30 federally recognized tribes that rely on the Colorado River, many have long complained that even though no one has been using it longer than they have, they've often excluded from discussions about how to share it. And now with some big negotiations coming up in the next few years, they are making it clear that they expect to see at the table. Okay, that's reporter Alex Hager who covers the Colorado River from a station kuan C, Alex, thanks so much. Thanks for having me. I'm Danielle alarcon host of rambling from NPR.

"With us. So all of this would have been underwater. Yeah. So what does this tell you about what's happening on the Colorado River? Well, it's a signal of the long-term problem we've been seeing since the year 2000, which is climate change is reducing the flows of the Colorado significantly. Lake Powell and Lake mead the two biggest reservoirs in the country were nearly full in 2000. Today they are just about 30% capacity. The lakes now a 155 feet below four. It's dropped something like 50 feet this year. And it's still dropping. Yes. And that's when power generation actually becomes to come into question. It would drop so low that it may not be able to not be able to generate power. I do electric power. Yeah. Brad you'd all have strong connections to the river. As secretary of the interior, his uncle Stewart udall opened the Glen canyon dam. His father, congressman Moe udall, fought to channel river water to Arizona. A hundred yards. As a young man, Brad was a Colorado River guide. Today he analyzes the impact of climate change on water resources. Is the west on a collision course with climate change? In some ways yes, but we have fully utilized this system we've over allocated it, and we now need to think about how to turn some of this back because the only lever we control right now in the river is that demand lever, we have no control over the supply. So we have to dial back demand. 70% of Colorado River water goes to agriculture. When the federal government declared the water shortage, it triggered mandatory cutbacks. Penal county, Arizona got hit hard. An out county alone, we're going to be losing 300,000 acre feet of surface water. That's water that would be delivered from Lake Powell, like mead,.

"A couple of weeks ago mountain west news bureau reporter. Nate heggie was standing on the edge of america's largest reservoir lake mead that straddles the arizona and nevada and it's massive more than one hundred miles long. Hundreds of feet deep and part of my job is to report on the growing water shortage in this area. Because let's face it much of this region is a straight up hot as hell desert. That's one way to put it and almost everyone in that desert gets their water from pretty much a single source the colorado river which is stretched thin these days. That river is where lake. Mead gets all of its water. It's the critical water source for millions of people. Living in seven states and cities like phoenix san diego and las vegas since the nineteen eighties lake mead and the colorado river at drying up because big reveal this is a desert a hot as hell desert right and climate change is definitely not helping things nor is the continued growth. Hordes of people are moving out west. And that's sucking lake mead dry and all this worries caldero rank. He's executive director of the base in water network and he focuses on water issues in the west. I'm i'm allowed mouth activist and these days. His loudmouth activism is focused on lake mead and the millions of people who are expected to move to nearby las vegas in the next few years. We can't go on with the status quo of just bulldozing the desert and squeezing as many people as possible and into those single family homes. This is the indicator from planet money. I'm darren woods. And i'm neat heggie. And this week we're talking about water in the west or the lack of it and today too fast moving trains that could collide that lack of water and explosive population growth support for npr and the following message. Come from usps. Your business is changing. Usps is changing with it. They're bringing small business. Solutions like fast reliable shipping nationwide more at usps dot com slash new routes the united states postal service priority. You this message comes from. Npr sponsor the capital. One saver card. You weren't unlimited four percent back on dining entertainment and popular streaming and three percent back at grocery stores capital one. What's in your wallet. Terms apply see capital one dot com for details. Las vegas is known as an oasis in the mojave desert. You fly above all these brown dry hot mountains but when you land in the city a palm trees lawns. That color emerald massive casinos also with big beautiful fountains and pools. But those big beautiful fountains and pools aren't actually very wasteful. The casinos are really conservative with their water. Cowering says they actually recycle a lot of it when i think of water waste in southern nevada. I'm not thinking of you know the tourists taking shower at the bellagio. After they just watched the fountain spit up and down outside. That's not what i'm thinking about. He's thinking about everybody else. That lives in las vegas and it's not about the water they use. It goes down the drain from showers or going to the bathroom. That's actually cleaned up recycled back into lake mead. What roaring is actually worried about is all the water. That's used outside on those green lawns or the golf courses or in gardens. You know that actually makes up about sixty percent of the water used in the city and it essentially evaporates so i asked him what he would do if we could anoint him king of las vegas and in charge of all water on day. One there would be no blades of grass. Left here are ip grass dead grass. No more in the city's actually pushed regulations that reduce the amount of grass and newly built home can have so no front yard only half. The backyard is grass. But you know that said. There are still a lot of existing lawns in las vegas. They'll probably be more of them. As the city keeps growing people love moving there right. Political leaders are so hungry to help. Las vegas grow that they're actually pushing federal legislation. That would sell off. Tens of thousands of acres of undeveloped public lands south of the city to build thousands of new homes for future residents. Maybe those new residents would want a nice organic garden or a patch of green grass. That of course means mobile usage. Yeah and obviously vegas isn't the only western city that's growing right like phoenix is getting bigger. They need more water saint george. Utah's growing they need more water and as we keep saying over and over again. There's only so much water in the west. These days i mean remember. Most of these towns are relying on this one shrinking river the colorado this brings us to the big economic principle known as the tragedy of the commons environmental economics. One a one. If you have a shared resource people will try to use as much of it as they can. The aren't necessarily bad actors right but they're just doing what's best for themselves taking a drink but as more and more people are developers. Take drink the water shrinks and roaring worries that people will start jostling for those last precious drips. you know. that's what makes us really scary is like. Are we setting up a situation in our country where one community is more important than other. So when isn't loses could emerge from the scenario. But eventually if all the colorado water disappears everyone loses in that case is government regulation needed. That's already happening. For instance all seven colorado river states each have a certain allocation of water. They're allowed to take each year and this year for the first time ever due to the drought that allocation was actually limited and southern nevada is already done a really good job of conserving. Water for instance. Las vegas has worked really really hard to reduce consumption among its residents and they actually chopped in half over the past two decades by changing rules and actually paying people to remove lines in creating these kinds of incentives. But much of the american west is a whole is still in love with its green lawns. They have to be eradicated. And like i hope that doesn't sound fascist but like having that green lawn goes against you know the nature of the mojave desert but these regulations take political will and not all state or local. Governments are on the same page for instance. There's this one small town oakley utah. They're actually imposing a construction moratorium on new homes. That would connect to the city's water supply because they just don't have enough water but in the same state you've got saint george utah one of the fastest growing cities in the country and they want to actually build a pipeline to suck more water from the colorado river so it's complicated because everyone from developers to political leaders to affordable housing advocates. They all say the same thing the whist is growing and if we shut the door stopped building we limit housing supply. Prices go up even more so cities continue to sprawl. In these dry. West and towns like phoenix. Salt lake city and boise. That helps solve housing affordability but it does not solve the water problem. And that's the crux of it roaring says if we do keep growing in these desert's we.

States in the West Face Water Cuts

"Residents in arizona. Nevada and across the border in mexico will have to cut their water consumption starting next year this the day after the extraordinary announcement by the us government of a first ever water shortage on the colorado river. Here's npr's kirk siegler. Some forty million people and countless farms rely on the colorado river and its tributaries. The shortage comes amidst a mega drought on the river basin. That's so far. Lasted twenty two years and as desert cities like las vegas and phoenix. Continue to grow at among the fastest rates in the us the entire reservoir system including lake mead with it's alarming white bathtub brings behind the hoover dam is now it just forty percent of capacity. Here's the department of interior secretary for water. Tanya trujillo we are seeing the effects of climate change in the colorado river basin through extended drought extreme temperatures extensive wildfires and in some places flooding landslides and now is the time to take action to respond to them. Arizona will be the hardest hit initially with these cuts. Losing almost a fifth of its entire river allotment for now california will not see any cuts because it's water rights are senior under century-old river laws. This shortage is monumental but it was also widely expected western. Water officials have been planning for this eventuality by ramping up conservation and water recycling. Tom bukowski directs arizona's department of water resources. This is a serious turn of events but not a crisis for now. Most cities won't see water. Supplies cut but farmers will in arizona. Thousands of acres of fields are expected to go fallow. Ironically the arid southwest is a huge producer of water intensive crops like cotton and alfalfa water law experts like marks quill lachey at the university of colorado say climate change will force this region to rethink how it uses its limited water. So many people rely on. We can't handle anymore stresses we're looking at a pretty dire situation right now on the river. School laci says climate. Change is drying out the soils and leading to rapid. Evaporation even a near average winters. Like this last one in the rocky mountains where snow melt feeds the river. That dry soils are acting like a sponge and they're soaking up a lot of water before that water can make it into the reservoirs. And that's likely to continue and federal water. Managers warned the shortages to will continue and probably get more severe. They'll reassess whether more cuts are needed in the next year.

A federally declared water shortage under which some western states will need to reduce their use of colorado river water. It's a sign of severe pressure on a water source that's vital to both the us and mexico. And amid the second worst mega drought. In twelve hundred years some say it portends the need for new water-management policies due to change but the emergency declaration reflects something else success at a collaborative model.

Y'all lauren i have been to the hoover dam o. My family and i drove over the hoover dam when you could still do that when i was fourteen. And what i remember is like precipitously tall. Massive concrete dam and a steep rock canyon. And when you look down at a dizzying so high yeah. Yeah and so back. Then you probably saw like a decent amount of water in the reservoir definitely. Yeah so since you've been there. The vars dropped by a lot since two thousand. It's fallen by a hundred and forty feet. Wow so now what you see when you look out. Is this white bath tub ring on the rocks around the reservoir which kinda shows where the water used to be and just this month it fell to its lowest point since it was first filled in nineteen thirties that is shocking and does that mean people have to start cutting back on their water us. Yeah and this summer you know. We're expecting the first ever official shortage to be declared on the river which basically means mandatory cutbacks for states like arizona.
