The energy requirement for this to happen
There is absolutely no need to jeopardize the water supply for 40 million people and for irrigation for 4.5 million acres of farm lands, by allowing the Colorado River system to dry up, when this can be prevented. The catchments basin of the Colorado River is so vast that a few inches of technological rain per month would rapidly fill the system to capacity and keep it filled, with enough spare capacity built in for expanding needs. The energy requirement for this to happen would amount to but a tiny fraction of the energy production that is already lost with the system drying up.
