"To build an industrial empire from the wasted power of the Columbia...They moved mountains and froze a land slide...Bonneville and Grand Coulee are only the beginning. Ten million horsepower of new energy swiftly can be harnessed on America's mightiest stream. Tame the hazardous rapids. Open the Columbia waterway to navigation 500 miles inland. Provide endless water power...Reclaim another million acres of dry but fertile land." --Bonneville Power Administration film The Columbia, circa 1950
