Fun Water Fact:

“The Colorado River and other surface water sources provide nearly 70 percent of Nevada's total water supply. A series of federally constructed reservoirs divert water to the seven states sharing water from the Colorado River. Nevada is allocated the smallest share, which is 1.8 percent of the total apportionments.”
