OUTDOOR IDAHO

Bureau that Changed the West

  • Aired: 02/22/2001
  • 26:49
  • Rating: TV-G
No federal agency has changed the face of the West more than the Bureau of Reclamation. Using concrete, and lots of taxpayers' dollars, the Bureau changed rivers and often the entire economic base of a region. Today the Bureau is struggling to find a new mission and many of its former supporters are not happy.
