This version has been edited from the original for generic use. Your district NRM and/or OC offices may have differing requirements that would require site specific modification.
Contract Specification Examples
The files contain contract specifications for the design and construction of interpretive exhibits. They are an existing contract but made generic as much as possible for your use. Numerous contracts from around the Corps were looked at and the best of each was incorporated here. Although you may not need to use them verbatim, they contain valuable information concerning what you may need to include, what to be careful of and how to avoid potential problems.

Water and Dams in Today's World - a video
The video, "Water and Dams in Today's World," was produced for the United States Society on Dams (www.ussdams.org). Snippets from older films make part of the video appear dated, but, overall, it does a GREAT job explaining the benefits of dams and why they were needed in centuries past and continue to be needed today. Secondly, it provides good information in general about dams and their workings. It is highly recommended for all visitor centers, and anyone needing to explain dams and their benefits. To obtain a free copy of the video, e-mail Mr. Larry Stephens at firstname.lastname@example.org. He's prepared to fill orders if he gets flooded with e-mails!
