The Basic Facts
When completed, the Three Gorges Dam will stretch
almost 2 km (1 mi) between the banks of the
Yangzi River near the city of Yichang. The
enormous dam is expected to generate 18,200 MW of
electricity and control flooding in a region that
lost more than a quarter of a million lives to
floods between 1930 and 1935. The reservoir
created by the dam will submerge a stretch of the
Yangzi River valley roughly 650 km (400 mi) long,
displacing as many as 2 million people and
inundating some 8,000 cultural sites.
