This article published on July 30,2013 would best be read after reading the article also posted under Lesson 3 (Wildlands Project) titled The Purposeful Flooding of America’s Heartland as this article gives greater background into how the Federal Government with the support of the Corp of Engineers has made removing dams across the nation a priority in order to return them to their natural flow.
