Hoover Dam intake towers

Seen in this photograph are two of the four large intake towers at Hoover Dam. These two towers are on the Arizona side of the dam, while the other two are on the Nevada side of the dam. The intake towers draw water into the dam to provide energy to turn the electrical turbines in the dam's power plant. After powering the turbines, the water is released at the base of the dam.
