A dam in Boulder City, Nevada, built as a Federal project by order of then USA President Herbert Hoover. It dams up the Colorado River, and thus created Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the world. It is used for water supply, recreation, and hydro-electric power.
Originally called "Boulder Dam", it was later named "Hoover Dam" after former USA President Herbert Hoover.
