Water and Las Vegas

I have been following the southwest drought. It does have implications. But this chart via USBR and via JFleck at Inkstain (HERE) may alter ones view. The short interpretation is that you could remove the entire City of Las Vegas and it would not even be close to solving the water problems on the Colorado River.

While Washington State has water policy issues it is rather minor compared to the potential problems on the Colorado River.
