Join Us on a Hard-Hat Tour of Hoover Dam, Other Infrastructure on Upcoming Lower Colorado River Tour
Register now for the April 11-13 tour
On our three-day journey along the Colorado River, April 11-13, you will learn about one of the largest and most managed rivers in the nation and go deep inside Hoover Dam, one of the nation’s most iconic structures.
The Bureau of Reclamation takes us on a special “hard-hat tour” of the dam. You’ll pass through elevators and doors that are closed to the public as managers give you an inside look at its operations. Highlights include walking inside the 2,080-megawatt hydropower plant, traversing interior service passages and inspection tunnels, and seeing architectural designs of a past era. After the dam tour, you will explore the expanded visitor’s center and walk to the top of the dam for an unforgettable view.
After our first stop at the dam, we continue through Nevada, Arizona and California to see Central Arizona Project facilities, the All-American Canal, Imperial Dam and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California facilities, including Gene Pumping Station and a boat ride through Copper Basin. If you are an engineering buff, this is a special tour you should not miss.
In addition to learning about water infrastructure, we’ll visit a conservation area and the Salton Sea, a major stopover on the Pacific Flyway.
