Draining the Dismal

Record #:
The Great Dismal Swamp spreads over six counties in Virginia and North Carolina--nearly 1,000 square miles of water, timber, and occasional wild animals. The inundated area has been reduced more than 50 percent from its original 2,200 square miles since early 18th century. Currently, Washington's Forest, Inc. is working 24 hours a day to drain the swamp, building over 40 miles of canals.
