Technical records of design and construction are a series of publications which
record the planning, design, construction, and initial operation of Bureau of Reclamation projects and features.
This technical record of design and construction of Trenton Dam is divided into
six chapters. Chapter I contains general description, history and authorization, geology,
and cost information. Chapter II is devoted to investigations of construction materials,
and studies of railroad, highway, and county road relocations. Discussions on the de
sign of the dam, spillway and river outlets, canal outlet works, and railroad structures
are included in chapter III. Chapter IV contains discussions on contract administration
and survey work. All phases of construction are discussed in chapter V. Chapter VI is devoted to test installations.
This technical record was prepared in the Commissioner's Office, Denver, under the direction of the Assistant Commissioner and Chief Engineer. Acknowledgment is gratefully made to the designers and field personnel whose contributions formed the
basis for this work.
