Introduction The Hoover Dam is located in the northwest of Arizona. It is about 40 kilometers southeast from Las Vegas.

It is an arch-type gravity man-made concrete dam with a height of 220 meters, a bottom width of 200 meters, a top width of 14 meters, and a dike length of 377 meters. Such a huge dam is rare in the world. It is like a giant dragon lying on the ground, which is very mighty. After the dam is completed, it will play a huge role in the development of industry and agriculture. The reservoir of the Hoover Dam is the famous Lake Mead. Lake Mead is the largest man-made lake in the Western Hemisphere with vast expanse of blue waves. It not only has beautiful scenery, but also can irrigate crops and use hydroelectric power, which plays an important role in the development of production.
