Flood control where?

Flood control where?
Creator: Jones, J.O.
Date: February 2, 1952
In this article from the Kansas Farmer, University of Kansas Professor J.O. Jones challenges the Kansas large reservoir plan aimed at flood control. "Nature has a disconcerting way of frustrating man's attempts to thwart her." Large dams, he argues, near the outlets of huge drainage areas do not offer protection to those portions of the basin upstream. "Tuttle Creek dam will not protect Marysville, Blue Rapids or Irving. Perry Dam will not protect Valley Falls."
