"
The field is wasted.....the harvest of the field is perished. The vine is dried up.....
even all the trees of the field are withered.... The seed is rotten under their clods...the corn is withered...
herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture...
fire hath devoured the pastures.... rivers are drying up."

Joel 1:10-20

7 States sign Colorado River Pact
States covered in the plan to operate the river through 2026 include Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.Shortages - Rules specify who will take reductions and when they take them during drought.
Conservation - Rules will address the ongoing drought by encouraging new initiatives for water conservation
The agreement is important to Colorado because it reduces the likelihood of a call on the Colorado River by the lower basin states.
Lake Mead, located near Las Vegas, provides water and generates power for Arizona, California and Nevada.

The lower basin states use more than their entitlement under the compact, while upper basin states use only about 3.5 million acre-feet annually.
In 2003, then-Secretary of Interior Gale Norton approved guidelines that would cut back California's use from 5.3 million acre-feet to 4.4 million acre-feet.
The agreements reduce the likelihood of a "call" - or a demand for upstream water users to bypass flows - during that time. Treaty talks are also under way between the U.S. and Mexico.
*An acre-foot equals 325,851 gallons; a million acre-feet is 325.85 trillion gallons. http://www.chieftain.com/metro/1197623941/1

Ogalala water depletion http://www.naturalnews.com/031658_aquifer_depletion_Ogallala.html

World's Largest Aquifier Drying Up ( Ogalala-- 8 states affected )
The Ogallala Aquifer, the vast underground pool that supplies faucets across the Great Plains, is running low, forcing farmers and towns to find other sources of water and pay dearly for it, too.
"Out here, water is like gold," Mayor Ed Wiltse said as he ran his hands over a chart of the town's faltering wells.
"Without it, we perish."
The Ogallala is the world's largest underground water system, irrigating one-third of the United States' corn crops and providing drinking water to parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. It contains enough water to cover the United States to a depth of 1 1/2 feet.
But some water experts have said it is one of the fastest-disappearing aquifers in the world.

Thirsty Californians to drink the Pacific

Some 90% of California's water is piped more than 250 miles to its consumers, the majority of it from the Colorado River. But with that supply endangered by declining levels, rising costs and contamination - and with memories still fresh of the droughts of the 1970s and 1980s - attention is turning to alternative sources.

Eighteen desalination plants are under consideration in California, offering a possible way out of the state's seemingly inexorable water crisis.
"God never intended southern California to be anything but desert. Man has made it what it is," the Californian essayist and activist Carey McWilliams quoted a visitor to the state saying in 1946. That sense of foreboding and impermanence infused much of the state's dealings with its scarcest resource during the last century.
The Carlsbad plant would be the biggest in the world, producing 50m gallons of water a day, enough to provide water for 300,000 people, and to satisfy 9% of the demand for water in San Diego County.
