I am confused if, The Colorado River runs southwest, how does this plant conserve water in Lake Mead?  It seems that all this desalinized water is just going back in to the Colorado river then on to Mexico.  I understand the benefit to the wetlands in Mexico but where is the benefit to Yuma and Lake mead?  I could see a dam raising levels of Lake Mead, but how does slowing the flow to desalinate increase levels of Lake Mead?
