My sister, her daughter, and husband took me out there in the summer of 1998 and I see some familiar places from your video and it is truly shocking the differences from then to now in the water level. Have you done any comparisons with what happened to the Salton Sea? With the level going down, I see the water becoming less oxygenated and fish populations that remain starting to die off, or will the dam open and allow the water to flow freely out to keep the water from becoming foul until the volume begins to climb again do you think?
Tezacatlipoca Xocoyotzin
The Salton Sea is a sad situation. I drive past it frequently and see it shrinking yearly. If it could somehow be connected to the Sea of Cortez or Pacific it would flourish making it a Desert Oasis. Imo it'd be costly but definitely worth it in saving it and providing sustainability.

@nicholas turney I was out shooting one time with my kids out in the hills toward Jean and got my truck stuck in the sand. Literally walked a couple of miles in the heat asking for people to help and they made every excuse to flat-out ignore me. A couple of dirt-bikers came and offered help and dirtied themselves up to get unstuck and I will be forever grateful. I couldn't believe these guys took an hour out of their fun-time to get dirty on their knees digging and pushing helping a complete stranger. I always make a point to repay (or pay forward) what those guys did for me that day.

Explain to me how catching a fish to eat is less respectful to nature than simply stabbing a hook into it, fighting it into air drowning while you look at it, with absolutely no intention of even eating it? Sorry, but catch and release is significantly more disrespectful towards nature than fishing for food. You deem it respectful to painfully and violently kidnap wild animals for the pleasure of the act and gawking at them? Listen, im fine with people fishing catch and release, but lets be very clear, it is unproductive, it is not respecting nature, it is essentially the equivalent of hunting for sport. Hunting, fishing, for food, sustainably, is respecting the environment. Hunting, fishing, for sport, is "disrespectful" to nature. How in the world are peoples ways of thinking so twisted that they view sport fishing as respecting nature, as if to imply that fishing for keeps, for food, ISNT? "I went out today and tossed a grappling hook at a deer, stabbed it through its bottom jaw, and dragged it, kicking and screaming, all the way to me, wearing scuba gear at the bottom of a pool, where i held the deer while i gawked and took pictures. And only once the deer was almost dead and stopped fighting did i let it go back to its habitat and take a breath. Sure hope no coyotes decide to pick it off now, not my problem!" Catch and release with land animals as though they were fish.

Wow! How sad! I use to patrol up to the buoy line at Hoover Dam when I worked as a US Park Ranger, and I can certainly tell the difference in Lake Mead’s water level. What’s sad is that I remember when there was a trout hatchery below the dam. I’m not sure if it is still there, but If there is no water flow out of the dam I believe that the hatchery won’t be able to operate there anymore.

In 2018, in response to Vegas adding a desalination plant in CA, the GM of Southern Nevada Water Authority said.... "We just simply don't need the water bad enough right now to move forward with that kind of hundreds of millions of dollars - or even billions of dollars - in capital investments for additional water supplies," I bet he's thinking differently now.

I retired from a large hydro plant. When the water gets below a certain design elevation, vertical shaft turbines cannot get enough lift when they spin so they sit too heavy on the thrust bearings when they generate. This damages the bearings(wipes them) and requires extensive and expensive repair. The generation output drops because there is not enough turning force as the elevation goes down and head(water pressure) is reduced by the dropping lake level.

Thanks for the technical information because this is actually interesting and important to me since I am analyzing best places to retire. All people moving to Phoenix...you can have it!
Devil's Offspring
Devil's Offspring 8 dias atrás
@Made in USA Ok, but what does the water head have to do with the thrust bearing oil pressure and bearing life though? I thought these were radial-inlet turbines, so the water pressure & flow rate don't affect the axial force on the bearings very much? (I'm no expert)
Made in USA
Made in USA 8 dias atrás
@Devil's Offspring Essentially, yes that is right. The units run on a lead alloy babbit shoe with an oil film. They are in a thrust tub with oil. Before the unit starts rotating a thrust pump starts and lifts the 600thousand lb unit off the shoe. Then as the unit spins the oil is pulled into the space between the thrust shoe and thrust collar(cannot remember the name of that piece). Then the oil pump is shut down until the generator is shutdown.
Devil's Offspring
Devil's Offspring 8 dias atrás
So, what you're saying is that the water flow actually supports the weight of the turbine runner, or at least part of it? I had no idea about that. I was under the impression that the water inlet flow was radial (sideways), and the exit flow was axial (downwards.) So, no lifting force produced to take some of the load off the shaft bearings.

7cogs 14 dias atrás
An issue that NZ faces is as climate change effects the weather we wont see as much rain in the warmer parts of the year and less snow in the winter on Ruapehu so the lakes along the Waikato river will begin to run low like Lake Mead in the summer and autumn. And the Hunua Ranges will also get less rain so the reservoirs that supply Auckland might be close to runing dry in some parts of the year, which will result in more water having to be taken from the Waikato river.

I've been following you guys and what's been going on out there. And wow, it's shocking and sad. I don't have much hope for the poor guy with the marooned yacht. I've had big boats and I can tell you that his boat weighs a lot. If there were a salvage operation having enough horsepower to pull the boat off of the sand bar, I wouldn't expect much of a chance. The reason is because of the weight of that boat, the hull itself would have to have a lot of strapping in the right places to advert busting up the boat. It's not a usual being stuck situation where some water remains present, so the cleats and chocks can't be utilized. The only thing that would work here (other than a lot of rain) would be to dredge out a channel low enough for water to reach the boat. I feel for this guy. And he's being really good not whining about it all. He'll probably to have to wait for the water level to rise. That will be a long and difficult wait. If he abandons the yacht it'll be pilfered for sure. Poor guy. Please pray for him and his situation. We all need to call it to God's attention.

Man so sad to see Lake Mead dwindle away. I used to spend every summer as a kid on that lake. We would rent a houseboat and find a cove and just spend a weekend having a blast. I remember one night we were docked and a thunderstorm came through and I was convinced we were gonna capsize lol good times.

Ive been watching your vifs on the lake drying up. I saw the house boat. I felt bad for that guy. I know you guys wanted to help him and it turn out that you put the wheel in motion. What a wonderful outcome.

Indeed this is quite informative. Last time i visit Lake Mead and Hoover Dam is in 1985 when i was 3 years old. It's during office event visit, also i am Indonesian and i follow my father during his works and study in US.

Nearly everyone on earth will be affected by what’s coming… Documenting it might just be far more valuable than they realize… This has the potential to be biblical in scale, especially with the grain supply of Ukrainian in jeopardy… Two of the most important food production areas on earth simultaneously….

Great video and story. And even better, I just saw a 8newsnow video clip and read the story that this gentlemen's houseboat was recovered successfully by HeavyDSparks and folks, and it is back floating on the water. Edit: Looking forward to hearing y'all's update.

The relationship you two have is admirable by any father and son. As any father knows, a son can be a big pain in the ass but it seems you’ve raised a real respectable man. And from a fellow Army vet, thanks for your service!!

It has been decided to lower the level of the Flaming Gorge here in Wyoming (I know it has to go through lake Powell first, so hopefully they are on board) to help you guys out. Not sure how much has been released from the Flaming Gorge but it is definitely noticeable. Have you guys seen impact as far as this doing any good? I think they started letting water out a month or two ago. Also what else do you guys use the water in Lake Mead for, drinking? Irrigation?

I appreciate you guys for documenting the lake issue, I first went to Hoover dam in 1993 and again in 2002, In 1993 I could have jumped in and hit water quickly from the dam, by 2002 it was shocking how much its level dropped. To see your videos its heartbreaking. I wish you guys and the entire South West luck and hopefully a solution can be found.

@James Holtzman problem is that nobody is going to do it full scale...reasoning from what I've read is cost and power draw from the facilities.

I’m just a public school kinda guy and don’t know anything about hydroelectric but does that water go down stream after it goes through the turbines? Well if they could figure out how to reroute the water after the turbines back to the Lake it won’t make it gain water level but it will put the water back in the lake and slow the loss down some I’d think then shut down the carwashes watering yards and no essential water activity or maybe they could build like some sort of temporary intake that goes deeper down idk just some ideas that popped in my pea brain

You guys are doing a great job reporting whats going on in Lake Mead. A lot of people are depending water from it, not just Las Vegas but also from different. western states. My question is when worse comes to worse is it possible to pipe water from Oregon or even Seattle all the way down to Lake Mead.
