Here's a clue in the original post: They diverted the rivers that feed it.

I assume normal drainage, usage, rivers flowing out, and evaporation will handle the remaining water.

Great thread. It is both sad and tragic how this unfolded, greed in one area destroys life and industry in another.

I guess it is all down to who has the most money and power.
