The article focuses on Paul Ostapuk, a member of Friends of Lake Powell at the Colorado River. The group was formed for the purpose of preventing the Glen Canyon Institute from getting rid of the Glen Canton Dam. Ostapuk studies meteorology and engineering at Northern Arizona University in the 1970s. After college, he worked in a dam, which made him a dam supporter, then moved to Page, Arizona to work at the Navajo Generating Station. The dam supports the economy of the region, from tourism to electricity and power.
