Glen Canyon Dam Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan EIS
The online center for public involvement in the Glen Canyon Dam Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan (LTEMP) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
The Department of the Interior, through the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the National Park Service (NPS), has prepared a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the adoption of a long-term experimental and management plan (LTEMP) for the operation of Glen Canyon Dam. The DEIS fully evaluates the effects of dam operations on resources in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Grand Canyon National Park, and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and provides the basis for decisions that identify management actions and experimental options that will provide a framework for adaptively managing Glen Canyon Dam over the next 20 years.
