The new Green River Dam is a rare win-win-win: better for boaters, fish and wildlife, and water users. Thanks to the project’s collaborative design, the last major in-stream barrier to fish and paddlers between Flaming Gorge and the Green River’s confluence with the Colorado River is now safe for boat and fish passage, while honoring the historical and agricultural significance of the diversion.
Help us say thank you to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Utah. Thanks to their efforts to include multiple stakeholders, the diversion will now help boost local recreational and agricultural economies, improve public safety, and support the five federally listed and endangered fish species that call the Green River home.
