According to the Environmental Protection Agency, every part of the southwest US has experienced higher average temperatures than the long-term average between 2000 and 2020, and large parts of the region have experienced drought conditions since 2000.
A major drought in the US Southwest is the worst in at least 1,200 years, due to the region’s high temperatures and low rainfall levels, according to a study published in February in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Utah’s Great Salt Lake, the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere, reached its lowest level in July amid a historic drought.
