A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Hoover Dam Collection - It was President Hoover who strongly supported construction of a high concrete dam on the Colorado River to control its flows, provide irrigation water to nearby farmlands, and provide a dependable supply of water for southern California communities. The Colorado River Compact, allocating the water distribution, was signed in 1922 paving the way for eventual construction of the gigantic project to tame the river. Work at the site in Black Canyon on the Colorado River between Nevada and Arizona began in 1931. The last concrete was poured in 1935 two years ahead of schedule, and the first power generation took place in October, 1936. An added benefit was the creation of Lake Mead, which today serves not only as water storage and control, but also as a tremendous recreational area comprising 550 miles of shoreline and 158,000 acres of lake surface. The dam itself is called an arch gravity dam, 726.4 feet high, 1244 feet wide and at the top, 45 feet thick. The base is 660 feet thick. Hoover Dam!
