42 Letters from Our Readers
Qiaestioxi
To
the
Editor:
A
friend
of
mine recentlyreturned from Lake Powell
and
told
me
the level
of the
water
was
lower than
it
had been
and
that
it is
still going down.I read,
too,
that they were letting water
out
of Glen Canyon
Dam
because Lake Meadis
so low. I am
planning
a
trip
to
LakePowell this summer
as a
result
of
yourstory
in the
April issue
of
DESERT. Couldyou give
me
information about this,
or
where
to
write?VICTOR FORCE,Beverly Hills, CaliforniaMr. Force's letter
is
similar
to
morethan
a
dozen received
by
DESERT askingfor information
on the
water level
of
LakePowell.
To
separate rumor from fact
we
queried both government officials
and con-
cessionaires
on the
lake.
As of
press time(May
1)
here
are the
facts:1.
It was
necessary
to let
water throughGlen Canyon
Dam to
fulfill
the com-
mitments
of
Lake Mead's Boulder(Hoover)
Dam.
Lake Powell
is
downapproximately
11
feet from
its
interimcrest.
But the
lake presently extendsfor
135
miles above Glen CanyonDam.
It is
still
one of the
largest lakesin
the
West.
2.
Continued cold weather (which
may
break
by the
time
you
read this)
has
delayed
an
anticipated runoff whichwould have brought water down
the
Colorado into Lake Powell
and at
least kept
the
water level even
by
counteracting
the
planned release
of
water
to
Lake Mead. Reports indicatea healthy
runoff,
once
it
starts.
3.
Boats
are
still being launched fromWahweap Creek
and
will continue
to
be unless
the
water drops another
six
feet, which
is
unlikely.
If it
does,
a
temporary launching site will
be put
up
at
nearby Kane Creek. Bill Greene,of
Art
Greene's Wahweap Lodge
and
Marina, reports
the
water will tempor-arily delay launching boats
at
theirnew million dollar Marina,
but
they
are
continuing business
as
usual
at Wah-
weap Creek
and
their motel, restaur-ant
and
marine facilities
are
operatingas usual. Boats
are
also still beinglaunched
at
Hall's Crossing underFrank Wright.
The
delayed rise
in
the lake
has
temporarily preventedlaunching
at
Castle Butte (Hite)
but
Concessionaire Gaylord Staveley willbe open
for
business
as
soon
at the
water reaches
his
area.
