Africa on the Matrix: The Zambezi River. Glen Canyon Dam. Take a Virtual Tour of the Dam Glen Canyon Dam is the key storage unit in a far-reaching water development plan called the Colorado River Storage Project.

Glen Canyon Dam

When the dam was completed and Lake Powell was formed in 1963, the irregular flows of the Colorado River were brought under control. The now-steady flow from the dam and Lake Powell makes water developments possible throughout the Upper Colorado River Basin and provides a regulated supply of water to meet downstream commitments. The portion of Glen Canyon you can observe downstream from the dam is typical Navajo sandstone, a thick formation that extends downward about 500 feet below the riverbed.

Navajo sandstone is principally solidified sand dunes, perhaps 150 million years old. This site was chosen for the dam because the canyon is narrow, the rocks are stable with no nearby faults, and an ample supply of hard rock aggregate for concrete was located nearby in the bed of Wahweap Creek.
