Bureau of Reclamation Historic Dams and Water Projects

What do you know about the water way out West? You might know a bit about the dams and water projects that have made cities like Phoenix, Las Vegas, and certainly Los Angeles possible. Well, all of that comes alive with this very unique Shared Heritage Travel Itinerary from the National Park Service. Created in partnerships with the Bureau of Reclamation and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, the site begins with three great essays: "Water in the West," "Mission of the Bureau of Reclamation," and "Bureau of Reclamation Engineering Achievements." Visitors can look at a list of sites covered by the itinerary, some nice maps of the American West, and the Learn More area, which includes additional helpful resources from a range of agencies and a selected bibliography. Overall, this site is perfect for travelers, historians, and those with an interest in engineering history more specifically.
