Fluctuating lake levels have forced Lake Mead consessionaires to move and reconfigure their marinas. This year's moves will cost them about $1 million by the end of the summer. The National Park Service estimates it will cost an additional $10 million to extend launch ramps. Funding from entrance fees and the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act will be used to construct permanent ramp extensions
