True or False : The LPP will drop water levels in Lake Powell.

False. When operating at full capacity, the LPP will deliver only about 0.35% of Lake Powell’s capacity. Potential impacts to Lake Powell, the downstream environment, or other water users from Lake Powell diversions have been studied and found to be minimal.

When Raw Number Don't Tell the Whole Story
Numbers alone don't always capture the full picture. This is particularly true when it comes to reporting water use.

Water use is typically reported in gallons per capita per day (GPCD), which is calculated by dividing water use by the population, divided by 365 (the number of days in a year). GPCD is helpful in estimating future water demand and tracking conservation achievements, but it is not an effective measurement to compare water use efficiencies.


Most cities and states calculate GPCD differently. And, GPCD does not account for climate and demographic differences.
