CCC Indian Division Camps – Uintah-Ouray Reservation UT

Description

Utah had two Civilian Conservation Corps-Indian Division (CCC-ID) camps, both on the Uintah-Ouray Reservation in the eastern part of the state. The Ute Tribal Council helped select the projects, which were typical of arid region works by CCC teams: erosion control, catch-dams for watering livestock, roads and fire trails, and telephone lines.
