The booming Rocky Mountain snowpack has eliminated the risk of a formal Lake Mead “shortage” declaration inand has substantially reduced the risk inaccording to the latest Bureau of Reclamation month importantly, in my view, is the reduction of a longer term risk of a legal battle over the Upper Basin’s Mexican Treaty delivery obligation.
