Nevada - Danau Mead, Nevada, AS yang selama ini digunakan sebagai waduk dan tempat penampungan air kondisinya mengering bak 'kolam mati'. Ikan pun enggan hidup di sana.

LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, NEVADA - JUNE 23: Grass grows on a now-dry section of lakebed at the drought-stricken Lake Mead on June 23, 2022 in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation reported that Lake Mead, North America's largest artificial reservoir, has dropped to about 1,044 feet above sea level, the lowest it's been since being filled in 1937 after the construction of the Hoover Dam. The declining water levels are a result of a climate change-fueled megadrought coupled with increased water demands in the Southwestern United States. Fears are increasing that Lake Mead could in years ahead become a ‘dead pool’, when the water levels become too low to flow downstream from nearby Hoover Dam. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Imag
