Technical records of design and construction are a series of publications which record the planning, design, construction, and initial operation of Bureau of Reclamation structures.
This technical record of design and construction for Prineville Dam is divided into three parts. Part I is devoted to general planning, historical information, a description of the features, a summary of costs, and geology. In part II there are three chapters covering the design of the various features and their components. Part III contains one chapter on contract administration and one chapter comprising a concise narration of construction operations and equipment installation.
This technical record was prepared by the Technical Information Branch of the Office of Chief Engineer1/ in Denver, Colo., from final design reports submitted by the design branches, final construction reports and cost information submitted by the field offices, and various planning reports. Acknowledgement is gratefully made to the designers and field personnel for their contributions to this work.

These must not be construed in any way as an endorsement, as the Bureau cannot endorse proprietary products or processes of manufacturers or the services of commercial firms for advertising, publicity, sales, or other purposes.
