Background: The film shows the Glen Canyon Dam, which is approaching completion on the Upper Colorado River in northern Arizona, one of America's western desert states.The project calls for a 160-acre lake.
Glen Canyon Dam, near scenic Grand Canyon, will be the second largest in the country.Construction started in 1960.It is scheduled to end this summer, although the first power-generating unit will not go into operation until next year.
Nearby is Glen Canyon Bridge, which is 700 feet above the river--the highest and second longest arch bridge in the nation.
All material and equipment for the dam are transported to the dam site by trucks.Included are about three million barrels of cement.
