The landmark structure was built during the American Great Depression period, between 1931 and 1936, costing the government $49 million dollars. The dam was initially named Boulder Dam, but was later switched to Hoover Dam in honor of the then-President Herbert Hoover, who made significant contributions to the construction of this prodigious project. With 221 meters in height, 379 meters in length, and more than 35.000 cubic kilometers of total capacity, the dam could create more than 4,2 billion kWh2 annually, Kenny Slaught notes.
