1957 - 2007

Dedicated to the many pioneers that recognized the potential and value to our Valley of a gravity irrigation system, and the sacrifices made obtaining it.

In particular, to honor the following three persons, whose contributions uniquely contributed to the construction of our Dam, and to the early development of the Palo Verde Valley:

O.P. Calloway (1820-1880)
The adventurer-explorer who had the original vision
of a vibrant Palo Verde Valley, fed by the
waters of the Colorado River.

Ed Williams (1866-1954)
Without whose early efforts in fighting an untamed river,
the Valley may have been lost to the elements
and forces of nature.

Wayne H. Fisher (1892-1962)
Without whose efforts in re-organizing and re-financing
the Valley during the Great Depression, our farmers
may have been lost to despair and to bankruptcy.
