    The Pick-Sloan Flood Control Act of (P.L. 78–), enacted in the 2nd session of the 78th Congress, is U.S. legislation that authorized the construction of numerous dams and modifications to previously existing dams, as well as levees across the United States. Among its various provisions, it established the Southeastern Power Administration and the Southwestern Power Administration. Levees to reclaim lakebed for agricultural use date from around the 's in the area commonly known as the Reclamation Area. Efforts to protect the community of Upper Lake began in with Congress authorizing a federal flood control project. It is known as the Middle Creek Flood Control Project.
