Lake Overholser Dam,Oklahoma City U.S.A.

The Overholser Dam was built in 1917 and 1918 to impound water from the North Canadian River west of Oklahoma City.

The dam is 62 feet high and 1,258 feet long. It was built by the Ambursen Construction Company of New York in a style developed by engineer Niles Ambursen, using concrete buttresses to support a slab of concrete that holds back the water.

Today, Lake Overholser is a ‘backup’ reservoir, tapped during the summer to meet the increased seasonal demand.

The dam was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
