It certainly would help the cities on the coast of California. Perhaps shrinking the need for water from the Colorado or Lake Meade. You have two problems with Lake Meade, the evaporation problem and people using more water from Meade than the Colorado River can replace. You also have the electricity output from Hoover Dam having been cut by a fourth as of now, with future electricity cuts very possible in the future as the water level drops. Another 175 foot drop, no more electricity from Hoover, no more water flowing through the dam for down stream use. The article stated Meade is at 36% capacity.That the two of the three intakes that supplies water to Las Vegas is now above the water line. The third is at the bottom of the lake.
