Upper Lake Powell (2013)
As is the case with most reservoirs in arid regions, Lake Powell’s water levels fluctuate significantly from year to year. Earth Observatory has put together a series of images showing Lake Powell’s levels from 1999–2013.
For water year 2014 (Oct 1, 2013 – Sep 30, 2014), the Bureau of Reclamation will be cutting Lake Powell’s release by ~10% (to ~7.5 million acre-feet), the lowest release since the reservoir began filling 46 years ago. More detailed information:
