This site appears to be above 300m (approx. 1000 ft) in elevation and requires special precautions before, during, and after diving. Consult an expert and get the necessary training before diving here.

This structure was used as a sediment settling basin during the construction of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River in the 1930s. Once clarified, water was piped to the Graven Screening Plant (Aggregate Piles) 40m/130ft below to wash gravel used in the dam's concrete.

This plant is usually under water but has been exposed during drought periods.
