8 PHOTOS THAT SHOW THE MAJESTY AND VULNERABILITY OF THE WORLD’S WATER

Nov 20, 2016 by

Lake Mead, Hoover Dam. Nevada, USA, 2015.

Lake Mead provides water to people living in Arizona, Nevada, and California.

Following years of drought in California and other Western states, the water level in the human-made reservoir at the Arizona-Nevada border has dropped to historic lows. In May of this year, Lake Mead was just 37 percent full, according to NASA. The faint white lines, or bathtub rings, in this photo show the difference between the current level of water and that in the past.
