        Fort Peck Dam: Boon or Burden?

        The water that flows through the spillways at the Fort Peck Dam waters crops and provides vital habitat to fish and wildlife. Managing a vast resource with numerous benefactors in a changing world is a complicated task. The dam itself has altered the distribution of the Missouri River, and choosing to manage this resource as public trust or leaving it to the open market is of fierce debate. When the Dam was built concern for the environment was overtaken by the need for flood control, navigation, and the rebirth of the American economy.
