For first time, Glen Canyon Dam alternatives addressed by federal government

Alternatives for major modifications to Glen Canyon Dam surfaced Tuesday at a public meeting, the first acknowledgment by the federal government that the dam could require changes.

But water conservation advocates say changes to the dam that would delay Lake Powell hitting “deadpool” status are likely too late.

GBWN’s Kyle Roerink spoke with KLAS, saying, “this proposal underscores what we highlighted for the public late last year: Glen Canyon Dam’s plumbing is a liability. Future low-level conditions jeopardize power generation and downstream deliveries to places like Las Vegas.”
