The US federal government declared an unprecedented water shortage in Lake Mead, the country’s biggest reservoir, and the lower Colorado River Basin, triggering rationing among users downstream amid an historically bad drought.

Water levels in Lake Mead are forecast to fall nine feet below the point at which a shortage determination is made by January, the bureau said.-
