Glen Canyon Dam Final EIS released after a six-year delay

January 25, 2016
by John Weisheit

The Final EIS analysis has the following components:

  • In ten years, the prescribed treatments will be reavaluated, which indicate the decision-making process is not robust.
  • The treatments were accomplished in face-to-face workshops with selected stakeholders and contract stateholders, which is "how things get done in the Colorado River Basin." It should be noted that discussions about the long-term cumulative impacts identified by the public were dismissed for another time and the delay will only compound those impacts.
  • The decision-making process is framed to assist stakeholders who desire economic certainty in real-time, which is impossible to achieve when other known impacts were excused.
  • The process was therefore not fully inclusive, and the resource will remain in jeopardy pending a decision to stop kicking this can down the road.
