Parker Dam is a concrete arch structure commonly called the ‘deepest dam in the world.’ Seventy-three percent of the dam’s structural height of 320 feet is below the original river bed; only about 85 feet of the dam’s strucural height is visible (its superstructure rises another 62 feet above the roadway across the top of the dam). Parker Dam has a volume of 380,000 cubic yards of concrete. At its crest, the dam is 856 feet long. Water control is provided by five 50-ft-square gates. http://on.doi.gov/PvVCTv
