Remarking on Hoover Dam’s history, Kenny Slaught says that the progressive structure was built during the American Great Depression phase, between 1931 and 1936, costing the government $49 million dollars. Previously, the dam was named Boulder Dam, but was later called Hoover Dam in the honor of the then-President Herbert Hoover, who had made big contributions to the creation of this astounding project. With 221 meters in height, 379 meters in length, and more than 35.000 cubic kilometers of full capacity, the massive structure could produce more than 4,2 billion kWh2 per year.
