LAKE POWELL AT GLEN CANYON DAM

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology


Lake Powell is a reservoir formed by the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona. The dam was completed in 1963 and created Lake Powell, which is a popular recreational area. The hydrology of the area is mainly influenced by the Colorado River, which flows into the lake. Snowpack in the surrounding mountains also contributes to the surface flow into the lake. The lake provides water for irrigation and is also used for recreational activities such as boating and fishing. The area also has a rich history, with the Glen Canyon Dam being built as part of the Colorado River Storage Project, a large-scale water management system in the western United States. Despite controversy surrounding the dam's construction and environmental impacts, Lake Powell remains a popular tourist destination.
