It should be simple. If you want water. Build where it's located. If it ain't in your state. It ain't your water.
Glacier melt and snow melt are where rivers are born; rainfall also contributes; very little to no rainfall during drought.
Where I live in Southern Nevada, the Colorado River is from snow melt in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. During this drought, the Rocky Mountain snow must melt, before it can feed the Colorado River, it must first saturate the dry ground from the drought. Water won't flow over dry ground until the ground is first saturated with water. No snow skiing in Colorado if there's no snow.
Reno, Northern Nevada get water from the Truckee River which gets it's water from snowmelt.Last edited: Oct 25, 2021
