Title So the Waters Can Flow
Description be there to shovel and pitch it onto the bank, later to be hauled away. This gave quite a feeling of accomplishment to the young boy as he drove those horses out of the culvert and into the sunlight. He felt like he'd really done something. Not only had he earned S5-00 a day for him and his team, flow freely across the valley. He was a man. For just a few years this means of dredging took place in the Ephraim Creek, but soon had to give way to modejmiza-tion. The cement Road was widened to meet the new cement sidewalks. The cement cap on the creek was expanded across the whole section that went underground. A cement bottom was put on the creek raising the creek bottom, makin. it too small for a team of horaes to pass through. Many precautions were taken during these years to prevent flooding: the Lake Hill Dam, the Settling Pond Dam, and Beaver Dame, but none any more important than clearing the ditches. And so it was during the Depression: folks ate their bread and milk, boys became men, and the community slept soundly because they had worked together, all so the waters could flow. J. Olsen, the author's father. The Log book of Ephraim Irrigation Company, 1920-1936. -47-
