    Comments Due by February 28th on the Bureau of Reclamation Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Long-Term Experimental Plan for Glen Canyon Dam

    The Bureau of Reclamation has initiated the first step in the development of the compliance for evaluating the long-term experimental and monitoring plan for the continued operation of Glen Canyon Dam. GCI was instrumental in forcing the government to initiate this review when we, in cooperation with several other environmental groups, successfully sued the Department of the Interior over their inability to protect the endangered fish and their habitats in the Grand Canyon. This has direct implications to the future restoration of Glen Canyon.

    Your input is necessary to ensure that the Bureau of Reclamation completes a scientifically adequate and operationally flexible evaluation of the impacts of future scientific study and operations at Glen Canyon Dam. GCI has developed a sample letter with comments that you may wish to review and utilize in your comments. We believe that the Bureau has artificially constrained the range of alternatives being evaluated and the integration of science into the long-term plans. GCI is requesting that additional elements be considered in the EIS review.

    Please see the following links for more information: http://www.usbr.gov/uc/rm/gcdltep/index.html GCI's sample letter can be found at: http://www.glencanyon.org/BORcomments.doc

    Written and electronic comments are due to the BOR by close of business on Wednesday, February 28, 2007. Comments can be sent to: GCDExpPlan@uc.usbr.gov or sent to: Regional Director, Bureau of Reclamation, Upper Colorado Region, Attention: UC-402, 125 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84318-1147 or fax at 801-524- 3858.
