Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Dez Dam is a large hydroelectric dam built in Iran in 1963 by an Italian consortium. The dam is on the Dez River in the Northwestern province of Khuzestan, the closest city being Andimeshk. It is 203 metres high, making it one of the highest in the world, and has a reservoir capacity of 3.340 million cubic meters. At the time of construction the Dez Dam was Iran's biggest development project. It is also possible to visit powerhouse which is located at the east side of the dam in the mountains. The powerhouse has eight vertical Francis turbines. The dam's current problem is the annual loss of reservoir capacity due to the erosion of soil in upstream areas.show more
