"The object of this paper is to investigate a means of supplying the City of Rolla with better water at a reasonable a price as possible. The elevation and distance of the supply from the city were very important factors,also the most economical position for the dam was to be considered. After examining several drainage basins with the above purposes in mind we selected one just west of the City on account of its convenience and high elevation. The watershed includes an area of ever eight hundred acres and is divided into two parts which come together in a narrow valley between two prominent hills"--Introduction, page 1.
