Lake Powell in the Colorado River Basin, which supplies water to the American Southwest, is at risk of drying up due to long-term drought in the region. Water resources for drinking, agriculture, and industry are dwindling. Power generation and tourism are also negatively affected by the water scarcity. At Moody's Mega Math Challenge 2011, thousands of students from high schools across the Eastern U.S. used mathematical modeling to determine the economic and hydrologic impact of the drought, while taking into account the political ramifications of water distribution to the basin states. The top six teams (out of a total of 568 participating teams) presented their papers at the final judging round on Thursday, April 28, 2011 at Moody's Corporation in NYC.
