You guys did really good again. Your coverage of the stranded houseboat got local news coverage, which got RU-vid attention and they got him out! All he had was himself and no money or wherewithal. You had a platform so people came. It really does take a village. ❤️

I just now read in a news story, that the gentleman's houseboat has been saved and is back in the water. This father/son team, and the man who drove to Lake Mead to get the boat back in the water, are absolutely wonderful people. It gives me a little faith in humanity again!

@nicholas turney I was out shooting one time with my kids out in the hills toward Jean and got my truck stuck in the sand. Literally walked a couple of miles in the heat asking for people to help and they made every excuse to flat-out ignore me. A couple of dirt-bikers came and offered help and dirtied themselves up to get unstuck and I will be forever grateful. I couldn't believe these guys took an hour out of their fun-time to get dirty on their knees digging and pushing helping a complete stranger. I always make a point to repay (or pay forward) what those guys did for me that day.

So glad you stopped to talk to that poor guy that was stranded and that it all worked out for him in the end. Fantastic job getting the ball rolling on that situation. Kudos

I retired from a large hydro plant. When the water gets below a certain design elevation, vertical shaft turbines cannot get enough lift when they spin so they sit too heavy on the thrust bearings when they generate. This damages the bearings(wipes them) and requires extensive and expensive repair. The generation output drops because there is not enough turning force as the elevation goes down and head(water pressure) is reduced by the dropping lake level.
o 18 hours ago
Thanks for the technical information because this is actually interesting and important to me since I am analyzing best places to retire. All people moving to Phoenix...you can have it!
Devil's Offspring
@Made in USA Ok, but what does the water head have to do with the thrust bearing oil pressure and bearing life though? I thought these were radial-inlet turbines, so the water pressure & flow rate don't affect the axial force on the bearings very much? (I'm no expert)
Made in USA
Made in USA 2 days ago
@Devil's Offspring Essentially, yes that is right. The units run on a lead alloy babbit shoe with an oil film. They are in a thrust tub with oil. Before the unit starts rotating a thrust pump starts and lifts the 600thousand lb unit off the shoe. Then as the unit spins the oil is pulled into the space between the thrust shoe and thrust collar(cannot remember the name of that piece). Then the oil pump is shut down until the generator is shutdown.
Devil's Offspring
So, what you're saying is that the water flow actually supports the weight of the turbine runner, or at least part of it? I had no idea about that. I was under the impression that the water inlet flow was radial (sideways), and the exit flow was axial (downwards.) So, no lifting force produced to take some of the load off the shaft bearings.
PH INFO 101 4 days ago
You are 100% correct but not to worry, the Hoover Dam turbines currently have approx 275' of head pressure with 169' of the 395' tall Intake Towers still under water.

My sister, her daughter, and husband took me out there in the summer of 1998 and I see some familiar places from your video and it is truly shocking the differences from then to now in the water level. Have you done any comparisons with what happened to the Salton Sea? With the level going down, I see the water becoming less oxygenated and fish populations that remain starting to die off, or will the dam open and allow the water to flow freely out to keep the water from becoming foul until the volume begins to climb again do you think?
Tezacatlipoca Xocoyotzin
The Salton Sea is a sad situation. I drive past it frequently and see it shrinking yearly. If it could somehow be connected to the Sea of Cortez or Pacific it would flourish making it a Desert Oasis. Imo it'd be costly but definitely worth it in saving it and providing sustainability.

This is so depressing. I grew up around Lake Mead in the 70's and 80's, and have so many memories there. The marina I used to hang out at had to be moved to Hemingway Harbor because the water disappeared underneath it. It's all dirt out there now. As an adult living in SLC, we used to rent houeboats at Lake Powell, and that lake has gotten as bad as Lake Mead.

Having done a tour from NZ to the Hoover and following the Lake Mead retreat over the years with water demand and climate change affecting everywhere its a pleasure to watch. regards from New Zealand.
7cogs 8 days ago
An issue that NZ faces is as climate change effects the weather we wont see as much rain in the warmer parts of the year and less snow in the winter on Ruapehu so the lakes along the Waikato river will begin to run low like Lake Mead in the summer and autumn. And the Hunua Ranges will also get less rain so the reservoirs that supply Auckland might be close to runing dry in some parts of the year, which will result in more water having to be taken from the Waikato river.

I've been following you guys and what's been going on out there. And wow, it's shocking and sad. I don't have much hope for the poor guy with the marooned yacht. I've had big boats and I can tell you that his boat weighs a lot. If there were a salvage operation having enough horsepower to pull the boat off of the sand bar, I wouldn't expect much of a chance. The reason is because of the weight of that boat, the hull itself would have to have a lot of strapping in the right places to advert busting up the boat. It's not a usual being stuck situation where some water remains present, so the cleats and chocks can't be utilized. The only thing that would work here (other than a lot of rain) would be to dredge out a channel low enough for water to reach the boat. I feel for this guy. And he's being really good not whining about it all. He'll probably to have to wait for the water level to rise. That will be a long and difficult wait. If he abandons the yacht it'll be pilfered for sure. Poor guy. Please pray for him and his situation. We all need to call it to God's attention.

Wow! How sad! I use to patrol up to the buoy line at Hoover Dam when I worked as a US Park Ranger, and I can certainly tell the difference in Lake Mead’s water level. What’s sad is that I remember when there was a trout hatchery below the dam. I’m not sure if it is still there, but If there is no water flow out of the dam I believe that the hatchery won’t be able to operate there anymore.

Not sure how much has been released from the Flaming Gorge but it is definitely noticeable. Have you guys seen impact as far as this doing any good? I think they started letting water out a month or two ago. Also what else do you guys use the water in Lake Mead for, drinking? Irrigation?

Thank you so much for your commentary I really appreciate it being a Las Vegas,NV HOMETOWN now that I live in Tennessee it’s really sad to see this this happen and I’ve only been gone for eight years this is really sad and it was really sad the Indians on the Arizona side that are granted water rights in the peace process with USA federal government Is now having to truck water into the reservation because their water sources dried up this is so very sad thank you so much again for your commentary. God bless you and your family and your furry friends 2 please stay safe and healthy 👍🏻😇🙏🏼✌🏻🦮🦮🇺🇸

I started watching you guys right when you guys started talk about the body popping up and then I see you guys on the news, pretty cool fellas! Keep up the good work!
Vegas Chef Andrew
@Sin City Outdoors Absolutely love that you're putting all of this out there for people to see. As a 20+ year resident of Vegas, it's a sad situation we're dealing with. Can you please highlight something else? At one point, Nevada offered to build, maintain and PAY for desalination plants on the Californian coast. They declined
Vegas Chef Andrew
In 2018, in response to Vegas adding a desalination plant in CA, the GM of Southern Nevada Water Authority said.... "We just simply don't need the water bad enough right now to move forward with that kind of hundreds of millions of dollars - or even billions of dollars - in capital investments for additional water supplies," I bet he's thinking differently now.

Nearly everyone on earth will be affected by what’s coming… Documenting it might just be far more valuable than they realize… This has the potential to be biblical in scale, especially with the grain supply of Ukrainian in jeopardy… Two of the most important food production areas on earth simultaneously….

Has the water level concentrated the fish population? I’ve seen this happen in other lakes.

Falling asleep casually on the lake while feeling all sorts of relaxed (for anyone that hasn’t experienced it, dozing off while floating on the lake is one of the most relaxing feelings possible) and waking up to be stranded has to be such an awful feeling

@Steven Glover Yup.....I fell asleep on a river tube once and almost missed my exit point.... which was kind of freaky....won't ever do that again alone.

Hell even falling asleep on a river tube and waking up in a torn bush makes it impossible for me to trust water.

Great video and story. And even better, I just saw a 8newsnow video clip and read the story that this gentlemen's houseboat was recovered successfully by HeavyDSparks and folks, and it is back floating on the water. Edit: Looking forward to hearing y'all's update.
