IMO Intel is more likely to leave if/when their tax parasitism incentive provisions become less attractive. For example, they're getting an 80% discount on their property taxes.

Lake Mead has dropped another ~4 feet since that time. A few hundred miles upstream, Lake Powell (only a tiny bit smaller than Lake Mead) is expected to hit an all-time low within the next two days: https://lakepowell.water-data.com/

Down and down, and down it goes, and where it stops, nobody knows...

"Record low" for those to lakes are being reported falsely. The first day that the water was allowed to build behind the dams was the record low.

But, did you expect it to go up during NHS (northern Hemisphere Summer)? Why do you think that cities are making long term major plans for water like Los Angeles did in the 190x's? At that time voters agreed to a bonds that were larger than the value of the City government's holdings. https://waterandpower.org/museum/Con..._Aqueduct.html

Yeah, it should have been "record low since the dam reached capacity". Kind of like how M51 is not the largest prime; just the largest known prime.

I thought that Mead's decline would stop (monsoon runoff).

Edit: just looked up the averages for Powell. It typically reaches a low for the year in mid-April, just before most of the snowpack in the Rockies starts melting. The yearly high is usually in early July, after most of the melting is complete. So there's quite a large drop left before Powell starts rising again.
