i think the awnser is c
The correct answer shall be: B) the damming of rivers to provide more consistent access to irrigation water. Explanation for why this may be so: The Great Plains region of the United States suffered from severe drought and dust storms during the 1930s. Crops were severely affected, livestock died, and farmers had to emigrate to the west to look for better living opportunities. As part of the programs created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the New Deal, he instituted the Prairie States Forestry Project and the Soil Erosion Service.
