Photograph of an arrow reflection in the waters near the Roosevelt Dam, Arizona, [s.d.]. The water, reflecting the nearby waterfront hills, creates an image of an arrow. The arrowhead is pointing to the right. Small amounts of debris are floating in the water (bottom left). Small mountains are visible in the background.; "Roosevelt Dam was originally constructed between 1905 and 1911 to control to the erratic flow of the Salt River and to harness the water for irrigation. The dam turned the Arizona desert into land that could be farmed. Once the world's tallest masonry dam, this structure is named after President Theodore Roosevelt, who was instrumental in approval of the Federal Reclamation Act of 1902, and who dedicated the original dam in March 1911. Roosevelt Dam is unique in the way it was originally constructed. It was the world's largest 'cyclopean-masonry' dam, a Greco-Roman style of building that uses huge, irregular blocks. It is now covered by new concrete. In 1996 a $430 million modification project was completed that raised the height of the dam to 357 feet and expanded the lake's storage capacity by 20 percent -- enough for 1 million more people. This 77-foot increase offers six Valley cities 304,729 new acre-feet of water storage to the dam and, for the first time, provides SRP with substantial amounts of flood control and Safety of Dams storage space. The dam has hydrogeneration capacity of 36,000 kW." -- unknown author.
