DOI Makes Additional Investment in Lake Mead Water Conservation

The funding will improve metering and distribution to save 700,000 acre-feet of water.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) distributed $700 million to long-term water conservation projects around the Lake Mead water reservoir in Nevada and Arizona. The funding will be used to improve the record-low water levels of the Lower Colorado River Basin, improving land management techniques and reservoir infrastructure to save more than 700,000 acre-feet of water.

“Building on our significant efforts to protect the Colorado River System, we are continuing to make smart investments through the President’s Investing in America agenda to strengthen the stability and sustainability of the Colorado River System and support the 40 million people who rely on this basin now and into the future,” said Secretary Deb Haaland.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Interior Department officials as they seek to conserve water in the Colorado River Basin.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Haaland as she oversees the allotment of funding for water conservation projects.
