Arch Dam: Leave It Alone!
Arch Dam __ Do nothing ___ Wrong

You've decided to tell the mayor to do nothing -- and the dam bursts! Now you have only one hour to evacuate the local residents before an 80-foot wall of dam water hits their city like a tidal wave.

Did you really want to do this? There is enough money in the budget to prevent this disaster -- and save thousands of lives.
