Heavy Machinery, Daingerfield State Park, c. 1936

While manual labor was often the mainstay of CCC work assignments, foundation work for the dams, including that at Daingerfield, often had to include heavy equipment in order to move construction fill. This project required 17,500 cubic yards (CY) of excavation and 75,000 CY of fill.
