Honors Forum to Discuss Future of Glen Canyon Dam

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University will hold an Honors Issues Forum Feb. 9 at noon in the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater. The event will feature a panel including representatives from the Glen Canyon Institute and the Bureau of Reclamation.

Lake Powell, the man-made lake formed by Glen Canyon Dam, has come under scrutiny in recent years for its effects on the environment. The panel will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the controversial project.

Founded in 1902, the Bureau of Reclamation constructs dams, canals and power plants. The Glen Canyon Institute was organized in 1996 to advocate a restoration of Glen Canyon in Arizona.

The event is free to the public. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to park at the Dee Events Center and ride the complimentary Wildcat Express shuttles to campus.
