Constructed in 1934 along the Colorado River, Parker Dam created Lake Havasu. Lake Havasu City water resources coordinator Doyle Wilson talked about how the water reservoir serves as a recreational spot in western Arizona but also plays a vital role in feeding water to millions of people in Arizona and southern California.
