Please don't mention the word ' Dam ' where Australia can see it...OK.....Its a very bad word here. We would rather the rain to flow across the land into creeks and rivers, flow to the sea then burn lots of brown coal to desalinate it..........Smart hey?

It is a dam and a dike. Probably the word "dam" comes from the Netherlands, the first records found with the word are all from the Netherlands. Cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Schiedam, Appingedam, Edam, Spaarndam and Zaandam have their name from a river and it's dam. Amsterdam --> river Amstel + dam. The Damsquare is called here "De Dam".

From wiki: "A dam is a barrier that divides waters. Dams generally serve the primary purpose of retaining water, while other structures such as floodgates, levees, and dikes are used to prevent water flow into specific land regions."

We use the word: "stuwdam" for the structures that are considered as typical dams in this thread.

Bakun Dam, Malaysia

www.bakundam.com/home.html

1) Bakun Dam will be the 2nd tallest concrete faced rockfill dam (CFRD) in the world. 207 metres high.
2) Bakun Lake will be the biggest lake in Malaysia by storage volume, equivalent to the size of Singapore.
3) Bakun Lake will be the largest lake in Malaysia by surface area, even though it is not apparent on the map, due to the sliver shape of the various lake tributaries, as a result of location in the highland valleys.
4) Bakun Power Station will be the largest hydroelectric dam in Malaysia, surpassing the currently largest Pergau Dam's power station in Malaysia.
5) Bakun submarine power cable will be the longest in the world, surpassing the current Norway to Netherland submarine cable.

Picture Here:

I have been informed that this is the tallest earth dam in the western hemisphere. I cannot seam to find any proof on weather that is true or not. It is 274 Meters tall constructed almost entirely from compacted coal refuse.

Any information would be great to have.

Hi, has anyone got an image of the Pergau dam that could be used on the website of a UK registered charity? We want to keep costs down and need an image of the dam to illustrate a page on a book that one of our Trustees has written. Thanks, Carolyn

Atatürk Dam
by Tuncay Karadas, on Flickr

The dam is situated 23 km (14 mi) northwest of Bozova, Şanlıurfa Province, on state road D.875 from Bozova to Adıyaman. Centerpiece of the 22 dams on the Euphrates and the Tigris, which comprise the integrated, multi-sector, Southeastern Anatolia Project (Turkish: Güney Doğu Anadolu Projesi, known as GAP), it is one of the world's largest dams. The Atatürk Dam, one of the five operational dams on the Euphrates as of 2008, is preceded by Keban and Karakaya dams upstream and followed by Birecik and the Karkamış dams downstream. Two more dams on the river are under construction.

The dam embankment is 169 m (554 ft) high and 1,820 m (5,970 ft) long. The hydroelectric power plant (HEPP) has a total installed power capacity of 2,400 MW and generates 8,900 GW·h electricity annually. The total cost of the dam project was about US$1.25 billion.
