The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation calls for additional 80,000 acre-feet of cutbacks to Central Arizona Project (CAP) deliveries in 2023, to 592,000 acre-feet — more than one-third of CAP’s annual apportionment of 1.5 million acre-feet. The Bureau’s new forecast, released today, is for Lake Mead’s elevation at the end of 2022 to drop 29 feet, to 1,039 feet, from the end of 2021.
