Yes, the resource you speak of being destroyed is our planet.Plant? The NGS? Extremely likely that the dam will run out of water, despite their best efforts to continue to destroy a resource...
What we need is some nice clean nuclear power!
Page would be a great place to build a new generation nuclear power plant. The transmission lines are already in place. (And, we can mine the uranium a short distance away on the rim of the Grand Canyon.)
The Arkansas River Valley would be another excellent location for a nuc plant. It is centrally located to many urban centers and could serve Albuquerque, the front range and the west slope. At night it could power the pump storage of the Mt Elbert Hydroplant.
I'm actually in favor of a new generation of nuclear reactors. We still have to figure out what to do with spent fuel that no one wants in their back yard. Not even the Nevadans.
