List of dams of the LCRV

This is a List of dams of the "Lower" Colorado River Valley. There are many smaller dams, check dams, or diversion dams, that lace the length of the Colorado River. The major Davis Dam directly downstream of Hoover Dam has the purpose of "re-regulating" Hoover Dam releases.

The purpose of this list is to accompany the List of lakes of the LCRV (birdwatching). The many lakes of the LCRV, the Lower Colorado River Valley, provide great opportunities for birdwatching, as well as a proximity to other riparian birdwatching habitats.
