The Glen Canyon Dam power plant is again allowing visitors but on a limited basis. Tours at Flaming Gorge Reservoir, however, remain suspended because of maintenance work in progress at the power plant.
Due to national security considerations, all tours at Bureau of Reclamation facilities around the United States were suspended when the war in the Persian Gulf began.Tours at Glen Canyon, located near Page, Ariz., will be limited to guided tours by BOR personnel. There will be no resumption of self-guided tours in the foreseeable future.
Those taking guided tours will be limited to carrying only a camera or a small handbag or purse. All larger bags, backpacks, camera cases and the like, will not be allowed.
Tours will be offered daily (including weekends) at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The schedules will be adjusted as needed when visitation increases. Guided tours at Flaming Gorge will likely begin again in April.
The visitor centers at both dams have remained open under direction of the National Park Service. All exhibits, film and video showings and the information desks are operating as usual.
