The low level of the water line is shown on the banks of the Colorado River in Hoover Dam, Ariz. Seven Southwestern U.S. states that depend on the overtaxed Colorado River say they have reached tentative agreements on managing the waterway amid an unprecedented drought. The plans announced Tuesday, Oct. 9 were a milestone for the river, which supports 40 million people and 6,300 square miles (16,300 square kilometers) of farmland in the U.S. and Mexico. The plans aren't designed to prevent a shortage, but they're intended to help manage and minimize the problems. (Daily Miner File Photo)
