Colorado River: As the Bureau of Reclamation’s Jan. 31st deadline looms for ‘fixing’ the massive problems on the Colorado River, three winners have been announced in the contest to re-engineer Glen Canyon Dam to reconnect the Colorado River through Glen Canyon and Grand Canyon. The contest, called “Rewilding The Colorado River” — at the website RewildingColoradoRiver.org – was an outgrowth of the “Dam the Status Quo” contest sponsored by former Nevada State Senator and current Clark County Commissioner, Tick Segerblom.
The winning white papers were submitted by Brook M Thompson, M.S. Stanford University, Ph.D. Student UC Santa Cruz; Sarah Gerot, Geological Engineering Student at Colorado School of Mines; and by co-authors C. Crosby, C. Stultz, K. Pederson, N. Botvin.
