Nevada Man Killed in Lake Mead Tunnel Construction Accident

Yet another person has been injured and another killed in a Lake Mead tunnel project accident yesterday. The name of the man killed is Thomas Turner, aged 44. The cause of death is still pending. The Lake Mead tunnel is being built to transport more water from the Boulder City, NV reservoir to drought stricken Las Vegas. This is the third tunnel from the man-made lake to bring drinking water to Southern Nevada. Lake Mead was created in 1936 when the Hoover Dam was built by the US Government.
