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.

Because this is an international web site and game with visitors from all around the world it´s important that everyone can understand what´s written. That´s why we ask you that all texts be in English or have English translation of the original text. Please understand why.
