ABSTRACT
The article offers an information regarding Lake Mead and Lake Powell water supply which stands a 50 percent chance of running dry by 2021 unless dramatic changes take place. According to the scientist from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the causes include growing population, risking demand for Colorado river water which feeds both lakes, and global warming. The new results, represent a first attempt to answer when lakes Mead and Powell would run dry.
