Lake Powell

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area authorities say an Arizona man has apparently drowned in Lake Powell.

A group of artists, scientists and geologists is wrapping up a raft trip from Wyoming to Arizona following the route of John Wesley Powell’s historic exploration of the Colorado River 150 years ago.


A 21-year-old Utah man has been arrested on suspicion of being drunk when a boat he was driving smashed into a rock at Lake Powell, causing a woman to be thrown from the boat and die.

Reservoirs around the Colorado River basin are in good shape after an exceptionally wet winter.

Researchers are working to better measure how much water is lost to evaporation at the nation's two largest reservoirs as part of effort they say could lead to new water management strategies.
