Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, United States, near the town of foot ( m) high dam was built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) from to and forms Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the U.S. with a capacity of 27 million acre feet (33 km 3). The dam is named for Location: Coconino County, Arizona.

    In the Upper Basin in , per the latest Consumptive Uses and Losses report, each state’s use as a percentage of compact allocation: Colorado: 57 percent Utah: 55 percent Wyoming: 42 percent New Mexico: 49 percent. In other words, pretty much everyone’s contributing here. In the Lower Colorado River Basin (LCRB), water use within irrigation districts receiving water under contracts with Reclamation is tracked through one of the most sophisticated water accounting systems in the world, the Lower Colorado River Accounting System (LCRAS). Reclamation administers this system on behalf of the Secretary of the : Bonnie G Colby.

1 Consumptive Uses and Losses PROVISIONAL UPPER COLORADO RIVER BASIN CONSUMPTIVE USES AND LOSSES INTRODUCTION The Colorado River System is composed of portions of seven States--Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.

It has a drainage area of about. Current law provides that the reduced water usage that results from participation in a government-sponsored water conservation program will not be considered in analyzing the historical consumptive use of the water right, but only in water divisions 4, 5, or 6.
