Building a dam where it NEVER belonged. To support a city that NEVER belonged. It matters NOT what history did but what Mankind destroyed just to make its self rich on something that also doesnt exist. Money. It was money and greed that produced Las Vegas. Produced by Mobsters and crooked polititions and funded by the citizens of a country that were hood winked out of their money to support Sin City. A town that shouldnt even be there.

Yes, you have to wonder where these people went to school. Buildings long under water - abandoned? I should hope so. Sad thing is, most people won't recognize the error, or the fact that the poster could have used a more descriptive title, such as "Inside the submerged buildings of Lake Mead."
Roscoe P Coltrane (2 months ago)
There's people's remains in the Dams concrete walls. The amount of concrete blocks that didn't set and collapsed on top of workers, resulting in most of them being left due to the amount of concrete that couldn't be moved it time and the heat was left. Creepy

I saw a complete documentary about the Hoover Dam. Very interesting. The concrete is still not set, deep in the dam. Concrete has to cure.

Environmentalists stopped a similar project in my area. They felt it would inconvenience some species. It would have saved the burning of huge amounts of fossil fuel every year.

Excellent work Troy, John and Kerry. But, since her name is Lake, shouldn't Kerry have been the one to make this dive?

IF the drought continues for the next 30-40 yrs, they'll be able to use it again...but most of us and various cites won't be around.

As grand an undertaking as it was--they should've named the dam after God.

My Grandfather( rest in peace), worked on the Hoover Dam Project. He immigrated from Italy, and arrived in the United States through Ellis Island.
Erich Von Manstein (2 months ago)
James Laspesa indeed there is. Men like your grandfathers came to the US the right way and for the right reasons. They became Americans through and through and help build this country. I salute them.
James Laspesa (3 months ago)
Cleo Fierro they also tried to fit in . They didn't refuse to speak English, they were determined to fit in and be apart of the usa. Not like today's immigrants, who do refuse to speak English and don't respect our flag.. huge difference between the two generations. Happy Thanksgiving bro. ✌
James Laspesa (3 months ago)
Cleo Fierro so did my grandfather! ! Awesome bro.

I wish the dam was never built because Phoenix sucks.

I usually drive 5 hours to lake Mohave. We have a boat that we drive to lake mead, then we go to the Hoover dam on the other side where the water is literally 30 degrees Fahrenheit
James DeWhitt (4 months ago)
No joke on that, that water is COLD, even after its let out of Hoover dam, a day down the river in July and the temp in the Grand Canyon is 104, it is still 60 degrees.

What’s the water level like these days?
Romantic Donkey (11 months ago)
Great story. Well done
James Hart (11 months ago)
And the only reason they can dive on this area is due to the level of the water in the lake going DOWN! In a few years it will be even easier to dive on. Unless people in Arizona, Nevada and California start to conserve water to a level they haven't yet, that lake will dry up. People do not realize where the water in that lake comes from. Western Colorado and western Wyoming. Too not very wet places. So yeah, think about it.
arod38XX (11 months ago)
Maybe they should look for that crashed b29 so the boomers can help with the pending 2nd battle of the dam

Michael Galey (11 months ago)
I wonder if that rock pile could be recovered and used for building our border wall. Now don't get your panties in a twist as an Engineer it seemed to be possible at the depth it's in.

I'm from that Era; using a Slide rule isn't that Hard. Now you have to say: these Men, Women, Transgendered, Muslim, Gays built the Dam...lol
