Decades of Drought Have Shrunk Arizona’s Lake Powell to Its Lowest Level Ever
A lake in the American southwest is shrinking rapidly. Arizona’s Lake Powell is now only 32% full. “The status of the lake today is not a great one,” Bob Martin, from the US Bureau of Reclamation told KPHO meteorologist April Warnecke. Years of drought have depleted the lake, and water levels are lower than they’ve ever been. “As we get further into the drought, the more serious it becomes for everybody,” said Martin.
