Hoover Dam spans the Colorado River at the border between Nevada and Arizona. Lake Mead is the reservoir behind the dam. The dam's hydroelectric power station generates, on average, about 4 billion kilowatt-hours of power a year and is distributed to Nevada, Arizona, and California. It meets the energy needs of approximately 1.3 million people. Lake Mead is also a significant source of municipal drinking water and agricultural water for the region. Almost a decade of drought and increased water demand have brought Lake Mead near its lowest level in over 40 years. Photo taken February 2009.
