Abstract: The necessity for using great quantities of power in war industries, particularly for the manufacture of basic materials-aluminum, steel, and copper-has dominated progress in hydroelectric development and necessitated a much greater use of power during the past few years. This has resulted in the construction of many new hydroelectric plants and enlargement of existing facilities for power, especially in the South and West.
