A closer look at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and how it works to control water flow in the Tennessee Valley in this Department of Interior video.

Part 1 shows rain storms and flooded streams, the flooded Tennessee River valley, Norris Dam and Wilson Dam, and a panorama of eroded land. Phosphate fertilizer is made in an electric furnace at Muscle Shoals, is bagged, and is shipped to the farmer. Contrasts productivity of fertilized and non-fertilized land. Part 2 shows crops and cattle on a farm, a delegation of farmers conferring with a county agent, the power house at Wilson Dam, electric power lines and towers, a reservoir, and a close-up of an electric light burning. A farmer installs an electric stove in his home.
