EnviroTech Services, Inc. takes water conservation seriously. We have covered water shortages impacting the Colorado River and highlighted water management efforts by the state of Nevada. Although this is an alarming issue, it is important to remain hopeful and review how states around the country are addressing water shortages.
Nevada’s harsh weather, low precipitation, and growing population make it difficult to maintain proper water levels. Southern Nevada currently receives 90% of its water supply from Lake Mead, which is fed by the Colorado River. The Colorado River provides water to not only Nevada but California, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and Mexico. As mentioned in “Water Shortages and the Colorado River: What Does This Mean?”, the Colorado River is drying up at alarming rates. Lake Mead has seen more than a 130 foot decline in its water level since 2000.
Being prepared is one of the most important qualities of a successful person or business. Mother Nature is not on a set schedule, so it is important to monitor inventories closely to ensure you have the proper resources for anything! Remember these three tips to maintain inventories:
A common and costly issue a variety of industries face is corrosion damage, yet no one seems to talk about it. The experts at EnviroTech are here to provide valuable information about what corrosion is, the affect of corrosion, and how it can be prevented. Let’s go over some commonly asked questions regarding corrosion:
Over the past decade, water shortages have been devastating to a multitude of areas throughout the world. The Colorado River provides water to more than 30 million people spanning from Denver to Los Angeles, and the Lake Powell and Lake Mead Basins are in a 20 year drought. Our use of water in the region and our actions impact the basin. Furthermore, the Colorado River is experiencing a phenomenon known as the albedo effect; previously, snow and ice reflected sunlight away from the Earth’s surface, but the loss of snow and ice is causing the river to absorb more of the sun’s energy thus increasing water lost through evaporation. The disappearance of snow and ice is due to increased emissions primarily caused by agricultural practices. A study conducted by US Geological Survey scientists, Chris Milly and Krista A. Dunne, predicts that if emissions stay at this rate, the river’s discharge could shrink by up to 31% by the middle of the century.
