Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Greenehaven Development Corporation have initiated an environmental assessment (EA) on a project that would allow the Greenehaven community to connect to the park's wastewater main.

The purpose of the project is to transport wastewater from the wastewater site at Greenehaven to the National Park Service's main wastewater line. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has determined that utilizing a force main to connect to the existing National Park Service force main, with the wastewater ultimately transported to the city of Page's wastewater treatment plant is in the best interest of public health, safety and welfare for the region. All impacts of the project will be limited to the road corridor along U.S. Highway 89 and will include the placement of the in-ground piping, lift stations, and required monitoring devices.

The wastewater generated by Greenehaven would join all wastewater generated in the Wahweap area and flow to the city of Page's wastewater treatment plant. In 2002, the National Park Service paid a $1.1 million tap fee to the city of Page to utilize the city's wastewater treatment plant and fund improvements in the city. The National Park Service also built a lift station in Page, lined the city's wastewater treatment pond, and constructed a wastewater pipeline in the city, which amounted to an additional $1.16 million in improvements. Glen Canyon pays for wastewater generated at Wahweap at the city's standard commercial rate of $2.50 per thousand gallons.
