The story reads much like those old western movies where a powerful landowner grabs up all of the water resources, depriving sodbuster families of the precious resource. The book opens a window into the real world of government and politics

The existing Little Dam and part of the forebay would be covered with fill material.
The height of the cut slope on the northwest side of the road would be decreased
considerably and the amount of excavated material would be reduced. The
existing maintenance and aesthetics problem would also be addressed by
stabilization and revegetation of the problem slope. The existing intake structure

The little creek then ran along the north side of the house yard for a ways then
went out into the barnyard, where it filled the barnyard water trough. Located
shortly after the creek passed under the root cellar, this water trough was just
outside the house yard fence. Dad had fashioned it by hewing out a large log.
Dad used that part of the house yard fence as a frame to make a small dam in the
little creek. Water from this dam ran into the water trough through a two-inch iron
pipe. Making ...

Floods had been a problem from the time of the very earliest settlements in the
valley. Lately, for the past ten years or so, they had been getting worse. The very
first flood anyone had bothered to make a record of in Johnstown destroyed a
dam. That was in 1808, and it had been only a small dam across the Stony Creek
which had been put in as a millrace for one of the first forges. Then there were the
so-called Pumpkin Floods of a dozen years later. They hit in the fall and had
swept ...

A small hydropower plant of 1MW capacity producing 6,000 MWh/year, reduces
annual carbon dioxide emissions by 4,000 tones compared with a coal. fired
power plant producing the same amount of energy1 Since the point of view of
Engineering Geology, the main potential environmental impact of a small
hydropower plant is the possible impact on the landscape produced by the
construction of the surface hydraulic channel as well as the little dam and
reservoir. In the Cordinanes ...

A delegation from Thermopolis, Birdseye and Shoshoni (including prospectors
who had formerly opposed Boysen) went to Cheyenne to protest the State
decision. Members of the delegation emphasized that they did not want to
support either the dam or the railroad to the exclusion of the other, but wanted
both to succeed. In defense of Boysen, they contended that the railroad grade
over the dam would be little more than the grade would be if the dam were not
built, and it would be ...

Watching closely, I'd get some more stones or rocks and perhaps use some mud
or twigs to help dam up the tiny stream. For a time, a few minutes or perhaps 10,
you could look at the little dam and think to yourself, “I did it, I did it...I stopped the
water from flowing through.” I'd sit back and wonder at the tiny but almost
meaningless accomplishment. Perhaps my amazement at this deed was only
curiosity or experimental play. As I sat and looked around and marveled at the
beauty of the ...
