Climate Change Is Destroying Part of the Grand Canyon — Here’s How – Green Matters
The dam, which is located along the Colorado River, is more than 50 years old. It’s the reason why Lake Powell exists, and although it’s used for hydropower, water levels are on the brink of being too low to even produce any. And because of the way the dam is built, water won’t be able to flow downriver, if levels continue dropping.
This could potentially impact water supplies for people in Arizona, Nevada, California, and even Mexico.
