Last day of BM&LP still 8/26?
Author: highgreengraphics

Any info as to whether or not the last trip of Black Mesa & Lake Powell in Arizona is 8/26? That is a Monday, maybe seems odd, anybody have any other info? I guess they are working off a stockpile, it's possible they would go through that faster than estimated, anybody know for sure with current info? Also, would they likely be running that weekend? === === = === JLH

They were running all three generators when we were there. Usually one every other time I’ve been there.

The Glen Canyon dam at Page AZ is also generating a substantial amount of hydro power.  Even though the Colorado River level has dropped in recent years.

A friend of mine down there now has talked to people on the ground and 08/26 is still the date.

Chamber of Commerce told me last month water in lake Powell is up 50' this year due to heavier snow and strong Spring rains.

This same friend also said they were going to make an effort to have the last remaining/ working orginal BM&LP motor, the 6006 in the lead.

Great, that is what I was hoping to hear! I'd help them wash the white one! === === = === JLH
