Future of Powell Forum
The Future of Lake Powell Forum
A forum discussion on what politics, policy, and climate change have in store for Lake Powell.
Join us, and a panel of experts, to start a conversation about long-term issues associated with management of Lake Powell. Since the Colorado River began filling Glen Canyon in 1963, the future of Lake Powell has been up for discussion. Climate change, politics and water-use policy all now factor into the fate of this vast reservoir in southern Utah.
