This frame is featuring one of the dams along the Rio Grande. In total there are two large dams and six small diversion dams, all of which make up the Rio Grande Project. The dams actively aide in supplying water to the states of Texas and New Mexico as well as the country of Mexico. One of the dams, Elephant Butte Dam, also supplies electricity to the cities in the area.
