      Hoover Dam construction, 1931-1936 ~ the Babcock & Wilcox company was contracted to build the water pipe, or penstock, system. "The task was enormous as the penstocks and outlet pipes were fabricated from 45,000 tons of steel and welded into nearly three miles of pipe varying from 8 1/2 to 30 feet in diameter. Although contracted to complete the project in five years, B finished the job a year and a half ahead of schedule." [Happily, the Braken Bat Cave Meshweaver spider wasn't discovered...]
