Philip Meyer took a series of photographs showing residents of the Blue River Valley as they prepared to move from their homes and farms as part of the Tuttle Creek reservoir and dam relocation project. He captioned this photograph "the incomplete dam, now about 20 feet high, already stretches most of the way across the valley. When finished, it will be 7,350 feet long and 135 feet high."
