Water levels at the Colorado River basin.

Lake Mead is getting more water but it won't be enough to pull back the reservoir from near-record low water levels, according to federal officials.

The lake, located on the Arizona-Nevada border about an hour from Las Vegas, is one of the main reservoirs in the Colorado River water system.

These low levels have alarmed water managers, farmers and cities throughout the region, as they depend on the lake for some of their water supply amid a more than a decade-long drought.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation officials say there has been near-normal runoff this year into Lake Powell, near the Arizona-Utah border and upriver from Lake Mead.

That will allow them to send 10 percent more water to Lake Mead than they did the past year.
