The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), established in 1902, operates in the 17 western states (see map) and is divided into five regions.

As the owner of these facilities, Reclamation is committed to providing the public and the environment with adequate protection from the risks which are inherent to collecting and storing large volumes of water for later distribution and/or release.
