PAGE, Ariz. -- Federal officials say they've come up with some proposals on how to manage the flow of water at Glen Canyon Dam.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the National Park Service have scheduled a two-day meeting in Flagstaff next week to present those plans to the public. They're also welcoming outside proposals.
The agencies have been gathering input on what they say is the first comprehensive review of dam operations in 15 years. They'll ultimately produce an environmental impact statement with proposed changes.
The timing and volume of water released into the Colorado River from the dam in Page affects hydroelectricity, beach recreation, archaeological sites in the Grand Canyon and native fish.
