The article focuses on the study to sustain water supply during drought times in the U.S. The author points out that hydrologists find it impossible that Lake Powell could run dry in two or three years if the drought continued. The drought alarmed many among the 30 million people who depend on the Colorado River and tributaries. Jim Lochhead, who represents several Colorado water districts in river negotiations, said that the last drought gave everyone a pause, it is like the stock market in which past performance is no guarantee of the future. The author stresses on the study for cloud seeding to sustain water supplies in the areas of Nevada, Arizona and Colorado.
