Will Las Vegas completely run out of water?

The city of Las Vegas is looming under water shortage. As the city is positioned in-between the middle of desert therefore rainfall is also very scanty. The populace of Las Vegas is apprehensive about the future of water supply in the region which is worrying. As the city gets 90percent of its water from Lake Mead, the lake is getting the brunt of the situation. The Lake Mead and the Colorado River are getting drier day-by-day due to overuse and it has been estimated that by the year 2021 the Lakes will completely dry out if the situation is not bring under control.

The population of Las Vegas is increasing rapidly and with the increase in population the demand for water also increases. However it is adjusting by competently making use of its current stores. The authorities are planning to build a $2.5billion to $3 billion pipeline to transport aquifer water from a far-away place called, Nevada by the end of 2015.

 

Additional conservation is being considering to keep the water flowing. For that purpose conservation campaign will come up in the recent years.
