A Damning Dam Report

Here's another gem from members of Investigative Reporters and Editors. Greg Bruno and Jessica Gardner of the Times Herald-Record in New York's Hudson Valley found that government inspectors of two dams in the Catskill Mountains repeatedly fabricated their reports. For more than three years, about 70 percent of the weekly inspection reports for the two dams were actually photocopies of previous reports, Gardner and Bruno write in "Phony Dam Reports." This is a nice example of strong investigative work being done by a small newspaper.
