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. http://www.usbr.gov/pn/programs/minidokadam/index.html
