A Spillway Rises - Reclamation is in the third season of a four year effort to replace the century-old Minidoka Dam. The original dam, completed in 1909, had suffered from concrete deterioration on the spillway and both irrigation headworks structures. The new dam will feature a shorter overflow spillway and a series of large gates to accommodate irrigation deliveries and flood control operations.

Lake Mead, the reservoir created by Hoover Dam, is anticipated this week to reach its lowest water level since the lake’s initial filling in the 1930s.
