BACKGROUND. Large dams are increasingly becoming a characteristic component of river basins in Africa. As the 56 countries of the continent-region develop economically and industrialize an increased demand for water has emerged, both for production of electrical energy and for establishment of modern high yield agriculture (usually through flood control and artificial irrigation).
The first major dam/reservoir was Gebel Aulia, closed in Since the Second World War there has been a steady increase in the number of dams closed per decade.
Total surface area impounded peaked sharply in the 's (due to the closure of several major dams.

1. Introduction. In many river basins with emerging economies, rising energy demands and campaigns to reduce fossil-fuel dependence have spurred the rapid expansion of hydropower (e.g. Zarfl et al.,Zhang et al., ).Hydropower production, which could increase by over 70% in developing countries in the next few decades (Zarfl et al.,IEA (International Energy Agency).
Dams are among the most damaging human activities in river basins, deeply modifying the physiography of watersheds. Reservoirs may look very much like natural lakes; however, the operating regime determined by the purpose for which the reservoirs were created may significantly alter their physicochemical character and biological responses.

Figure 1. Map of 3S Basin showing existing and future (under construction, planned, and proposed) dams as of (WLE ) as well as the locations of three water quality monitoring dams were defined as dams located on a major river or a tributary with a significant impounded reservoir (>25 km 2 surface area).
Minor dams consisted of dams on smaller tributaries. DAM DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES INTRODUCTION Dams which are under the jurisdiction of the Dam Safety Office (DSO) of the Department of Ecology are defined by statute (Chapter RCW) and rule (Chapter WAC) to be structures which can impound more than 10 acre-feet of water.
This definition is broad in scope and applies to. As construction of the dam got under way, the specifications changed from time to time. The length of the concrete portions of the structure was reduced to 1, feet, the roadway was removed from atop the dam and made to cross the river just below the dam site, the size of the tainter gates was increased from 26 feet by 40 feet to feet by 40 feet, and the powerhouse was relocated from.
Dam - Dam - The modern dam: Most modern dams are of two basic types: masonry (concrete) gravity designs and embankment (earthfill or rockfill) designs.
Masonry dams are typically used to block streams running through relatively narrow gorges, as in mountainous terrain; although the structures may be very high, the total amount of material required for such sites is limited.
The Dam Safety Regulations (Chapters WAC) are applicable to dams which can impound a volume of 10 acre-feet or more of water as measured at the dam crest elevation. The 10 acre-feet threshold applies to dams which can impound water on either an intermittent or permanent basis.
While the removal of the dams won’t make the Klamath River entirely dam-free (there will be two more upstream dams remaining), it will open up miles of stream habitat for salmon and other fish. It’s also expected to help improve water quality, including reducing threats from toxic algae that have flourished in the warm water of the.
By creating reservoirs and thereby increasing the abundance of standing freshwater within landscapes, many people might anticipate that large dams would provide huge opportunities for increasing fish production. Indeed, dam proponents often promote increased fisheries as a significant secondary benefit of a large dam; one that will partly.
The natural blockage of river channels by landslide debris gives rise to a range of potentially adverse processes including complete or partial damming, backwater inundation and sedimentation, catastrophic outbursts of impounded lake waters, and downstream river aggradation following dam failure.
Most reports portray landslide dams as short. Arch Dams • The shape & design of arch is such that the whole or greater part of load is transferred to the abutments. This means the rock below the abutments should be competent and stable. • Grouting can be done at weak planes to improve the competence of the site.
The selection of dam site across a river is to impound water.The National Inventory of Dams currently indicates our nation has more t dams. The Forest Service owns or has under its special use authorization about 1, dams; more than 50 percent are beyond their design life. Due to their advanced age and limited maintenance, dams need to be assessed regularly to ensure they will not fail.
