Operation Mainstream

Record #:
Since 1963, the W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir near Wilkesboro has benefitted the area by providing flood protection along the Yadkin River, as well as recreational opportunities and jobs. Operation Mainstream, a work-study program for the chronically unemployed, provides workers from Wilkes County to help clean up the debris left by the flood waters contained by the reservoir. In exchange, the workers get a paycheck, work counseling, and a basic education.
