Will the Hoover Dam Hold?

This would rather be the end of Bechtel, wouldn't it? A damned catastrophe. Whoever said it was a good idea to halt the flow of the Colorado River? When Government bids were requested, Bechtel was the only consortium capable of coming up with the required bond amount which was covered in 1931 by Aetna.

3.7 million cubic yards of rock excavated, 4.4 million cubic yards of cement poured. Nature pays us back how many-fold?

Let's re-define "entitlements"
