Talking about dams still in use and water technology but not mentioning the greatest ancient dams in one of the world heritage monuments?

Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1315

Quote:
Shushtar, Historical Hydraulic System, inscribed as a masterpiece of creative genius, can be traced back to Darius the Great in the 5th century B.C.

The Shushtar Hydraulic System is testimony to a remarkably accomplished and early overall vision of the possibilities afforded by diversion canals and large weir-dams for land development.
