This page shows the state-wise list of dams and reservoirs in India. It will take between 5 and 15 years to fill with water,[12] depending on hydrologic conditions during the filling period and agreements reached between Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt. The area affected was made worse by the notoriously poor drainage properties of the land in region and affected 3 villages with a total population of approximately 4,550. In some publications, the main contractor constructing the dam puts forward a number of 170 m (560 ft) for the dam height, which might account for the additional depth of the dam below ground level, which would mean 15 m (49 ft) of excavations from the basement before filling the dam. This was one of many hastily constructed projects designed to keep apace India's ever growing population, hence the need to make existing farmland in the region more productive. This early power generation will start well before the completion of the dam, when the filling of the reservoir commences. Studies indicate that the primary factors which will govern the impacts during the reservoir filling phase include the initial reservoir elevation of the Aswan High Dam, the rainfall that occurs during the filling period and the negotiated arrangement between the three countries. This spillway has a base-level at 640 m (2,100 ft), which is exactly the full supply level of the reservoir. [6], The primary purpose of the dam is electricity production to relieve Ethiopia’s acute energy shortage and for electricity export to neighboring countries. The installed power of 6.450 MW in combination with the size of the reservoir will help to manage the side effects of the next severe drought, when other hydropower plants have to stop their operations. [17], Egypt, located over 2,500 kilometres downstream of the site, opposes the dam, which it believes will reduce the amount of water available from the Nile. [55], Public consultation about dams in Ethiopia is affected by the political climate in the country. The eventual surplus electricity of GERD which does not fit the demand inside Ethiopia, is then to be sold and exported to neighboring countries including Sudan and possibly Egypt, but also Djibouti. Wilson dam backwaters. The water reservoirs used for power generation in Ethiopia have a limited size. GEORGE TOWN, Oct 7 — The effective capacity at the Teluk Bahang Dam in Penang remained low despite increased rainfall in Penang over the last few weeks. [22] The dam is being funded by government bonds and private donations. Earthen + Gravity Dam Length: 1280 meters Height: 26.237 meters above its foundation: Gross Storage Capacity: 89.59 mcm: Live storage capacity: 80.7 mcm: Purpose: Irrigation + … Hydropower generation can happen between reservoir levels of 590 m (1,940 ft), the so-called minimum operating level, and 640 m (2,100 ft), the full supply level. [55] According to an independent researcher who conducted research in the area, 20,000 people are being relocated. [24] Ethiopia requested that the Egyptian Ambassador explain the meeting. [35][40] The GERD reservoir will foreseeably take away the siltation threat from the Roseires reservoir almost entirely. [73] According to Egyptian government, however, the report "recommended changing and amending the dimensions and the size of the dam".

[4], Originally, in 2011, the hydropower plant was to receive 15 generating units with 350 MW nameplate capacity each, resulting in a total installed capacity of 5,250 MW with an expected power generation of 15,128 GWh per annum. [16] The expectation was for the first two power-generation turbines to become operational after 44 months of construction, or early 2015. Sudan has accused Egypt of inflaming the situation. Ghod dam, there's water everywhere" and "Ghod dam, Bessie is floating away". There is only a 10 m (33 ft) elevation difference between both projects. The spillway will be 84 m (276 ft) wide at the outflow gates.
