Lake Mohave is a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River that sp acres. It is a part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and was created by the construction of Davis Dam to capture water releases upstream from Hoover Dam. The mile long reservoir runs along the Arizona/Nevada state Ruby Lake (Nevada, USA).

Spring-Summer | Lake Mead, Arizona – Nevada | This Envisat image features the manmade Lake Mead, located east of Las Vegas (visible) and west of the Grand Canyon along the border of the US states of Arizona (bottom, east of river) and Nevada (the rest). Lake Mead was established in the early s by the construction of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River (bottom).

The Hoover Dam. The Arizona Geological Survey is studying the Mead Slope fault (s video), located on the southeastern side of Boulder Basin, Lake Mead area, Arizona, in hopes of determining the fault’s activity.

This fault system is close to Hoover Dam, so understanding the history of faulting is very important for evaluating seismic hazard in the area. BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS Reconnaissance geology between Lake Mead and Davis Dam, Arizona-Nevada. US Geol. Surv. Prof. Pap. 51 pp. With Reuben J.
