Lake Powell

Environmental groups that have long pushed to bring down a huge Colorado River dam along the Arizona-Utah border are suing the federal government.

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.
