What Exactly Is Going On At Lake Mead?

Following our exposure of the plunge in Lake Mead water levels post Friday's earthquake, officials were quick to point out that the drop was "due to erroneous meter readings" - which in itself is odd given we have not seen such an aberration before in the measurements. The data today shows a super surge in the Lake Mead water level - which, even more mysteriously, indicates from pre-earthquake to now, the Lake has risen by the most in a 3-day-period in years (as long as we have found history). How was this level 'manufactured' you ask? Simple - discharge flows from the Hoover Dam were curtailed dramatically. We are sure there is a simple explanation for all this...

 

Yesterday we noted the plunge in Lake Mead water levels...

 

Officials said - do not worry, the readings are faulty...

Which resulted in this miracle...

 

The biggest 3-day net surge in water levels (0.7 feet from Thursday to Sunday) on recent record...

 

How was this miracle achieved (given the general lack of precipitation)? Were discharge levels curtailed drastically?

 

Nope - nothing odd here at all...

 

So what exactly is going at Lake Mead?
