Summary

In support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Albuquerque District’s (SPA’s) efforts to manage John Martin Dam and Reservoir, located on the Arkansas River in Bent County, Colorado, it was requested that Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI), develop a historic context for John Martin Dam and Reservoir that addresses the historical significance of the dam within the larger framework of federally sponsored flood- and water-control projects.

The historic context presented in this report discusses historical themes associated with water control in southeastern Colorado's Arkansas Valley, with an emphasis on the authorization, design, and construction of John Martin Dam and Reservoir, and the impact the project has had on southeastern Colorado. Additionally, the context identifies property types associated with the dam and its appurtenant works and describes them based on form and function. Archival research and field investigations were conducted in December 2009 and April 2010, respectively.
