In 1943 thousands of people across North America traveled to Washington to partake in the construction of Grand Coulee Dam. The Columbia Basin Project was a massive undertaking that required countless hours of hard work. The creation of this dam helped irrigate more than 1,000,000 acres of land throughout Central Washington and our Country. Without the Grand Coulee Dam, our land wouldn’t be the livable, workable, home we know today. The Columbia Basin Project plays an enormous role in agriculture across our great state. Dams provide growers with proper irrigation and power to produce some of the best products in the nation. Clearly, there is a lot to learn about our rivers. WSPC staff had the opportunity to share just how important dams are to agriculture at the 2019 Riverfest event! The exciting day had plenty of family-friendly vendors, exhibits, and entertainment for everyone to enjoy while learning about the important benefits of the Federal Columbia River Power System. An old friend even stopped by our booth! Don’t miss this free, fun-filled, educational event again in 2020, it is going to be a blast!
