Lake Mead, the reservoir created by Hoover Dam, is anticipated this week to reach its lowest water level since the lake’s initial filling in the 1930s. The Bureau of Reclamation’s Boulder Canyon Operations Office is projecting the elevation to drop to 1,081.75 feet above sea level during the week of July 7, 2014 and to continue to drop, reaching approximately 1,080 feet in November of this year. http://on.doi.gov/1n53UiP
