Water Resources Image-Tumalo Dam work

Workers use a steam shovel during the excavation related to the construction of the Tumalo Dam in Deschutes County in circa 1914. Predecessor agencies to the Water Resources Department had considerable authority over irrigation and reclamation projects, such as the Tumalo Irrigation Project, in the early 1900s.
