The article I read was Let the River Run Through It written by David R Brower from the Sierra Club It tells of how David Brower had the chance to stop the building of the Glen Canyon Dam and it was not necessary for the dam to be built in the first place Over forty years ago in Northern Arizona the Glen Canyon Dam was built This dam now holds the water of Lake Powell and beneath the water is a canyon that many hikers and scenic seekers used to travel and enjoy David R Brower states we can reverse it now We can drain Lake Powell and let the Colorado River run through the dam that created it bringing Glen Canyon and the wonder of its side canyons back to life par 3 It is said that by draining Lake Powell the beauty of the canyon will once again return to its original state Brower also stated that Glen Canyon Dam was built as a power project in order to raise money for the Colorado River Storage Project so that the US Government could build useless dams par 5 A huge reservoir absolutely not needed in this century almost certainly not needed in the next and conceivably never to be needed at all Brower par 2 In many ways I do not agree with this idea of draining Lake Powell The canyon beneath that people used to hike would never look the same as it did Brower puts many claims and opinions in this article where facts would have backed up his argument He had more facts published on the benefits that dams provide rather than facts of them being useless The statement that dams are useless is just a claim Brower also stated that the need for Glen Canyon Dam was never there par 2 However studies have been done that show that Lake Powell saves a certain amount of water per year
