Flood Control – Panaca NV

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed what was known as the Panaca Project, an attempt to protect the eastern Nevada town from floods. The CCC constructed a “12,590-foot earthen dike and a mile-long canal around the outskirts of town.” Unfortunately the improvements proved short-lived.
