China dam reaches operating peak

China dam reaches operating peak | Oxford | Scoop.it

The Three Gorges Dam, upon its completion, was estimated to have cost $40 billion and also to have caused around 1.4 million people to relocate.  According to Chinese authorities, it is a much-needed solution to the frequent flooding of the Yangtze river and is also very important as a source of power.  The dam's energy capacity is equivalent to 11% of China's total hydropower capacity.  However, since the maximum water level was reached, the number of geological disasters in the area has increased.  Up to 100,000 more people may need to be moved due to these disasters.
