Parker Dam is located on the border between Arizona and California. It was completed in 1938, and was created to bring both power and drinking water to Southern California. It is 320 feet (98 meters) high and 856 feet (261 meters) long. It separates Lake Havasu (the high side) from the Colorado River (the low side).
