'Newsweek' reports that states in the lower Colorado River basin have proposed solutions as water levels at Lake Mead and Lake Powell inch closer to dead pool status. Water cuts have already been implemented and increased in severity in Arizona and Nevada in 2023. The cuts have left western states scrambling to come up with a solution that preserves their access to Colorado River water while also aiding the reservoirs' recovery. 'Newsweek' reports that increased water use and water evaporation from global warming have contributed to the declining water levels amid a historic 20-year drought. Despite torrential rains and a higher-than-normal snowpack melt, experts say water use must be cut for the reservoirs to recover. . So far, seven states in the Colorado River basin, including California, have proposed , water conservation plans.

The mid-August deadline proposed by the bureau lapsed, but some of those states have since reconvened and reached a consensus. . 'The Guardian' reports that six western states have agreed on a plan to dramatically cut use of Colorado River water.

But Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming have decided to work together. The states wish to raise water levels where reductions would occur at Lake Mead and Lake Powell, effectively creating a protective buffer for the reservoirs.

The actions would reportedly result in 2 million acre-feet reductions in the Lower Basin and smaller cuts in the Upper Basin.

This Day in History: , Pluto Is Discovered. February 18, 1930. Once believed to be the ninth planet, Pluto was discovered at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, AZ, by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh. Tombaugh discovered the tiny dwarf planet using a new astronomic technique of photographic plates combined with a blink microscope. Pluto was given the Roman name for the god of the underworld in Greek mythology due to its surface temperature of -360° F. Nearly four billion miles away from the sun, it takes Pluto approximately 248 years to complete one orbit. . Pluto's only known moon, Charon, has a diameter of a mere 737 miles. In 2006, it was announced that Pluto would no longer be considered a planet because its orbit crosses into the orbit of planet Neptune. While widely referred to as a dwarf planet, many argue that it should still be considered a planet.
