Film Screening: Grand Coulee Dam, A Man-Made Marvel
Wednesday, March 4, 2020
A century ago, many looked at the Columbia Basin as a vast wasteland. But a few dreamers saw something more, an idea to turn that harsh landscape into acres of farmland. These visionaries understood the potential of the Columbia River. The power to irrigate, create energy, and control flows would become a reality. But it would take decades of tenacity, manpower, and focus.
Grand Coulee Dam includes three major hydroelectric power generating plants and a pump generating plant. The facilities provide power generation, irrigation, flood control, stream flow regulation for fish migration, navigation, and recreation.
This film is being shown in lieu of previously scheduled program with Grand Coulee Dam Historian Shawn Lingo.
