Caban Coch Dam
Caban Coch Dam
The impressive steep frontage of the Caban Coch dam holding back the waters of the reservoir of the same name. At the bottom of the dam a jet of water shoots out from the hydroelectric turbine hall. When the dam is full to overflowing, this gently sloped dam becomes an enormous waterfall - see SN9264 : Caban Coch dam overflowing for example.
