false promise of Hoover Dam

Coalition viewpoint…Farmers actually receive about 30
percent of the water that flows through Lake Mead – 2.85 maf out of the 9 maf
that flows to the lower basin states and Mexico.  That’s water the farmers
had rights to receive and were using before Lake Mead was ever built. What
farmers do not receive is any compensation for the power generated using the
water to which they hold the rights. That power benefits millions of people
year after year after year and the revenue generated by power sales has paid
for Hoover Dam many times over.
