Will basin states’ plans save operations at Glen Canyon, Hoover dams?

Politics and threatened litigation are replacing what is left of the water in the Colorado River as the seven basin states that rely on the West’s largest river try to reach an agreement to cut flows so power generation can continue at Glen Canyon and Hoover dams.

Only six of the states have agreed on a proposal. But critics say the proposal is mere baby steps that tiptoe around the reality of long-failing Lake Powell and the power generation now in jeopardy.
