The Colorado River, which feeds Lake Mead, is drying up — so the lake is rapidly shrinking. Islands are growing, and boats are floating far from where they once were.
Formed by the Hoover Dam (1935) along the Colorado River, Lake Mead is the 16th largest manmade lake in the world and one of the largest manmade lakes in the Western Hemisphere.
The lake provides water for 20 million people in southern Nevada, southern California and Arizona. The problem is, since 2000, the lake has lost 4 trillion gallons of water.
