The Fort Peck Dam on the Missouri River on MontanaPictures.Net (Page one of eleven)

 
      62511 This week we explore the towns of Fort Peck, Park Grove & Nashua, Montana.
      You are looking at the two vertical surge towers.  They act as small reservoirs to smooth out the flow of water to keep
      sudden surges in flow from damaging the turbines.  The surge tower on the left went into operation in 1943.  The surge tower on the right was completed in 1961.

      62511 The Fort Peck Dam Interpretive Center and Museum.  Admission is free and is worth the stop.
      The Fort Peck area is home to some spectacular fossil fields.  Wait until you see the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the main lobby of the Interpretive Center.
