Are there any rivers that have disappeared because of water diversion?

    One of the most famous water diversions in the United States’ history is that of the Colorado River. Nearly a dozen hydroelectric dams and several irrigation aqueducts have completely changed this once-mighty river. Places such as the Imperial Valley in California rely entirely on the Colorado for drinking water and irrigation. While the Colorado River still exists, it no longer follows its natural course to the ocean, often bone-dry near the end of its path before it reaches the sea.
