The Works Progress Administration (WPA) carried out flood recovery work after the floods in Parkersburg in the spring of 1937. The WPA provided 700 workers (200 of which were National Youth Administration workers) and $ 31,000. The WPA crews assisted with evacuation efforts and the protection and recovery of property.
