Major American Cities Could Run Out Of Water

<< back to releases

Ten prominent American cities could face severe water shortages in the coming years, according to a new article from 247 Wall St.com. The web site identifies the cities it believes are particularly vulnerable to water shortages, particularly as climate change progresses.

The 10 water-endangered cities named in the article are listed here along with a brief description:

  1. Los Angeles – fastest growing city in the U.S.A. imported water from drought prone Colorado River, electric production also in peril as Lake Mead level drops.
  2. Houston, Texas – high drought risk, surface water supply, sea water intrusion into groundwater, and fast population growth.
  3. Phoenix, Arizona – 8.3 inches of rain per year, reliance on water from the drought prone Colorado River basin, and significant growth.
  4. San Antonio, Texas – looking for a new major water supply project ahead of the next big drought.
  5. San Francisco Bay area – drought-prone water supply, large population, and legal battles over water.
  6. Fort Worth, Texas – growth, drought-prone surface water supply, and a major lawsuit pending with Oklahoma over the Red River.
  7. Las Vegas – 4 inches of rain per year, declining water levels at Lake Mead, an explosion of growth, and great distances to new sources of water.
  8. Tucson, Arizona – fast growth, 12 inches of rain per year, a shrinking groundwater supply, and political uncertainty surrounding the Central Arizona Project.
  9. Atlanta, Georgia – fast growth, limited water supply, and disputes with neighboring states.
  10. Orlando Florida – as of 2013, this fast growing city can no longer increase pumping of the Florida Aquifer.
