Amid continued drought, more dire predictions for water levels at Lake Powell
Officials with Glen Canyon National Recreation Area continue to report what they call "unprecedented" low water levels at Lake Powell.
Following a dry November across the region, water manager’s predictions are significantly lower than what was announced last month.
The dwindling water levels have impacted access to several boat ramps and other popular recreation areas.
In October, Rainbow Bridge National Monument became harder to reach from the lake because of the low levels as well as mud and debris from recent rains.
The area’s dock system is no longer connected to the shoreline but is still accessible to visitors via a trail that was recently extended another mile by park service crews.
