Time series (1938-September 2016) of the annual average water level of Lake Mead at Hoover Dam. Water levels in Lake Mead have varied widely over the years. Low levels in the 1950s and 1960s were due to drought and the filling of Lake Powell, respectively. Recent years have seen the lowest recorded levels since the original filling of Lake Mead. The red-dashed line indicates the threshold (1075 feet) below which a federal shortage will be declared, resulting in reduced water allocations for Nevada and Arizona. Source: USBR.
