Water Projects
Senado Votación Nominal 162
Tema: Agua

Public Works and Atomic Energy Appropriations for fiscal 1971 (HR 10090). The vote is on the Nelson amendment to withhold funds for construction of four watershed projects until February 1, 1972 because the agencies involved failed to file adequate environmental impact statements. The amendment defended the integrity of the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires that comprehensive environmental impact statements be completed before such projects are begun. These four projects would dam and channelize very beautiful free flowing eastern rivers. They are: the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway in Alabama and Mississippi, the Tellico Dam on the Little Tennessee River, the Duck River Dams in Tennessee, and the La Farge Dam on the Kickaroo River in Wisconsin. (Amendment rejected 17-56; July 31, 1971; "Yes" is the correct vote.)
