Upgrade Power Servicing Echo Bay
Upgrades to the Primary Power Servicing the Echo Bay Developed Area
William K. Dickinson, Superintendent, has announced the release of an environmental assessment to evaluate a proposal to upgrade the existing power servicing the Echo Bay developed area within Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The National Park Service (NPS) is considering upgrading the existing powerline to ensure that reliable power is available for NPS, concessioner, and visitor safety, and to eliminate power outages that have impacted the daily operations of NPS staff and concessioners. The NPS is working with Overton Power District No. 5 to achieve these results.
