Lake Mead, is named after Dr. Elwood Mead, the U.S. Reclamation Commissioner between 1924 and 1936. It is a man made lake created by Hoover Dam. When the lake is 'full', it has over 550 miles of shoreline and covers about 247 square miles. Within the five basins of Lake Mead it can store almost 2 years average flow from the Colorado River. The light areas on the sides of the mountains show the "full" line. The lake is at relatively low levels the past few years. More water being let out than has been coming in from winter runoffs in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming.
