Navajo Generating Station (NGS) Stack Implosion 12-18-20

This morning I had the opportunity to watch the implosion of the stacks at Navajo Generating Station (NGS). The plant shut down in November of 2019 and due to COVID restrictions, decommissioning has been slow. I know this power plant has no direct bearing on the construction of Glen Canyon Dam, but it has everything to do with the population of Page in terms of jobs and income. I started my career with Salt River Project at NGS in 1976 during the startup of unit 3, so I was excited to witness this event and record it for posterity’s sake. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. Having watched NGS being build, it was surreal to see it coming down. I hope you enjoy this video.
