-Nose Clip?[edit]

"A simple nose clip would have saved his life. "

Any citations for that? 72.194.122.14 20:01, 2 October 2007 (UTC)John D. Oct. 2, 2007

"Infection" info reinstated[edit]

I reinstated the info about the infection, making it about the water quality and moving the reference from the turkish discussion to this section. It is interesting and relevant, not sure why it was deleted. --Tinned Elk 00:03, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


The entire section on the infection should be removed unless you want included article for the amoeba itself. It serves no purpose on the Lake Havasu page no matter how interesting and relevant. It may have been considered relevant at the time of the incident, but now no longer needs to be mentioned at all. It is akin to putting every story about every fluke accident on the lake itself on the Lake Havasu page. It only clutters the page and is not of importance of an encylopedia article about the lake. You would never find info such as this infection in any other such encyclopedia. Dewaltracingfan (talk) 05:50, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

"Party on Lake Havasu"[edit]

Shouldn't somebody talk about the extensive party scene that takes place on this lake? It is more than well known for the parties that take place. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.85.206.227 (talk) 00:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC) Someone should talk about the police corruption problem, the problem with the overzealous court, the city's reprimanded judge (for being unfair in trials towards defendents as he is a recently retired cop) and reputation "come to Havasu on Vacation and Leave on Probation" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.184.234.155 (talk) 03:34, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

"Depth"[edit]

The article says the depth is 3,240 ft. That would make it one of the deepest lakes in the world. Plus the dam is only 300 or so feet tall. I doubt this is accurate and it needs a citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.67.123.187 (talk) 02:58, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

I found this odd as well. I've posted a question about it on the reference desk; if someone can't come up with a reliable source backing that number up I'll probably just remove it after a week or so. AlexiusHoratius 18:51, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
I just went ahead and removed the figure for now - the more I thought about it, the less sense it made. If someone finds a maximum depth along with a reliable source, feel free to add it back to the infobox. AlexiusHoratius 19:34, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Havasupai[edit]

Wasn't the lake named after the Havasupai people? If so, shouldn't there be a link somewhere in the article? --Geopgeop (talk) 08:57, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

I found a source that says otherwise. —Stepheng3 (talk) 19:31, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
