What Does This Year’s Snowpack Mean For Lake Powell And Glen Canyon?

While all of the water locked up in this winter’s high snowpack bodes
well for the river system, it’s not obvious how much of that snowmelt
will actually make it to the reservoirs. The extent to which snowpack
will impact Lake Powell levels depends on the trajectory of its melt and
factors such as soil moisture levels, future precipitation,
temperature, and evaporation rates.
