Over 20 million people living in the Southwest U.S. depend upon Lake Powell for an ensured water supply and their economic well being.

Lake Powell is the 2nd largest reservoir in the United States, capable of storing 24.3 million acre-feet of water, which eliminates the need for severe water rationing during times of drought.

Water flowing through Glen Canyon Dam provides a valuable source of hydroelectricity, important to the stability of the western grid electrical system and an important source of revenue to the federal government for the repayment of irrigation projects in the Upper Basin of the Colorado River.

In addition, Lake Powell is considered by many to be the most beautiful lake in the world, with sandstone canyons and 96 major tributaries awaiting exploration.

Decontamination is now required for boat leaving Lake Powell.
All boats must be cleaned of mud and debris and drained of all water including live wells, wakeboard ballast and bilges on the launch ramp. Failure to do so before leaving the launch ramp will result in a citation.

Please check your docklines and anchors to ensure that
no mussels are transported to other bodies of water.
