The Great Pueblo Flood

Season 8 Episode 9 | 56m 40s | Video has closed captioning.

In early June of 1921, Pueblo experienced a devastating flood that destroyed much of the downtown area. The river that formerly brought life and sustenance to the region now left death and destruction in its wake. A century later the river has been tamed by a dam and a levee, and the Historical Arkansas River Project is the centerpiece of a development effort that is changing the face of a city.
