Description:
A dam is a barrier across flowing water that obstructs, directs or retards the flow, often creating a reservoir, lake or impoundment.
This category wants to waymark all those structures around the world.
Expanded Description:
This category accepts all types of water dams.
The Dams must be man made and must still be in use (ancient ruins or failed dams are not allowed).
Ancient water dams (Example: Roman Water Dams) can be waymarked if they are still used to obstruct, direct or retard the water flow.

Please include all information you can gather about the Water Dam, and, if possible, a brief history of the building, it´s characteristics, any funny or strange story that happened there, and, of course, some pictures.
