This major US city's water supply is drying up at a blistering pace

A major US city is watching its water supply dwindle at a record pace, as an extreme drought is wreaking havoc on the entire area. 

As the city’s reservoir continues to lower, officials are worried that water may have to be rationed soon. The issue is not only plaguing a major US city, but the crisis impacts two states as well. 

The water supply in question just hit a record low. Photos of the reservoir show just how drastically low the water is after it dipped to a depth of just over 1071 feet last week, which is the lowest it has been since the reservoir was constructed in the 1930s.

Which reservoir is at risk of running dry? And which major city and two states does it affect?
