(Boulder City, NV)  —  The valley’s largest source of drinking water could be affected by a new forecast for the Colorado River.  According to the Bureau of Reclamation, a drier winter has meant less water for the river that supplies Lake Mead.  The man-made lake is expected to drop 17 feet over the next year.  The Las Vegas Valley gets about 90-percent of its water from the lake by way of the Colorado River.
