New techniques being employed in constructing Bureau of Reclamation structures and facilities in the 17 western states are described. In meeting future challenges, the engineering profession and construction industry must devise new construction techniques to accomplish work economically and expeditiously, and use their technologies and experience to provide an improved environment reflecting the relationship of man to his needs and the high standard of living enjoyed in this country. The resourcefulness and skills of engineers and contractors will be challenged as water resourced projects grow in magnitude and complexity and as the Nation's needs for water continue to mount.
