The latest forecast projects Lake Mead will end water year 2010 at 1,077.2 feet above sea level, a bit over two feet above the drought restrictions trigger. Mead is at 1,097.03 currently.
Changing rainfall patterns, natural climate variability, high levels of evaporation, reduced snowmelt runoff due to global warming, and current usage patterns are putting pressure on water management resources at Lake Mead even as the population depending on it for water and the Hoover Dam for electricity booms. A 2008 paper in Water Resources Research states that at current usage allocation and projected climate trends, there is a 50% chance that live storage in lakes Mead and Powell will be gone by 2021, and that the reservoir could drop below minimum power pool elevation as early as 2017. However, Terry Fulp, manager of the federal bureau office for the lower Colorado, disagreed with the paper, saying that global climate models were not sensitive or refined enough to forecast such effects.
