The Colorado River, once the wildest river in the United States, carved one of the most amazing natural sites in the world…..the Grand Canyon. Fed by melting snow from the Rocky Mountains and several smaller rivers, the Colorado River is the 7th longest river in America, stretching 1,450 miles in length. It runs through the driest part of America and supplies water to cities like Los Angeles and Las Vegas. In addition, it has turned many acres of desert into valuable farmland.

In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt signed the Reclamation Act, which authorized the Reclamation Service to investigate and help develop the arid lands of the West through water development projects. Between 1905 and 1907, the Colorado River gouged a hole in a levee near Yuma, Arizona and flooded Southern California’s Imperial Valley, causing extensive damage and creating the Salton Sea. These events prompted investigations on how the Colorado could be controlled to provide a reliable year-round water supply for developing communities and farms in the Southwest.

In 1922, Arthur P. Davis, Reclamation Director and Chief Engineer, proposed the construction of a high dam to be built on the Colorado River at or near Boulder Canyon. With this proposal, he suggested that the cost of construction could be paid back by selling electric power generated by the power plant.
