The Bureau of Reclamation will increase water releases from Glen Canyon early next week.

From Nov. 5 to 8, the Colorado River will be running faster and higher through the Grand and Glen Canyons as part of an ongoing high flow experiment.

The increased flow is meant to move accumulated sediment further downstream to help rebuild eroded sandbars and beaches — areas that are important for wildlife along the river.
