Boulder City, NV – June 2005 – Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam is a massive dam that blocks the Colorado River on the Nevada/Arizona border. Built during the 1930s at the cost of over 100 lives, it has provided electricity and water to the southwest ever since.

The dam’s upstream reservoir is Lake Mead, one of the largest reservoirs in America by volume.
