What are the positive effects of the Hoover Dam reservoir?

User Avatar
The Hoover Dam provides a supply of water for many cities, including Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix. It is used to generate Hydrolectric Power (HEP) which relases no pollutants. Obviously, the Dam is used to prevent flooding in the seven states in which it runs through. It is also used for irrigation.

How many people died during the building of the Hoover Dam?

User Avatar
There were a total of 114 deaths associated with the building of the Hoover Dam. The official figure however, is 96. Figures other than the official figure vary from the official 96 deaths to 112-114. According to the website of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, figures higher than 96 are including additional deaths such as deaths prior to the authorization of the dam's construction, deaths of nearby workers that may or may not have been directly involved with the project, deaths of workers who died of causes unrelated to the project, and deaths of family members of the dam's construction workers. The Bureau of Reclamation also points out on it's site that despite myth and rumor to the contrary, there are no bodies buried within the concrete of Hoover Dam.

Where does the power from the Kinzua Dam go to?

User Avatar
Authorized by the Flood Control Acts of 1936 and 1938, Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir is one of 16 flood control projects in the Pittsburgh District. The project provides complete protection for Warren, Pa., from Allegheny River flooding, and in conjunction with other projects in the District substantially reduced flooding in the Allegheny and upper Ohio River Valleys. The project's flood control capabilities were dramatically demonstrated during the June 1972 floods resulting from Tropical Storm Agnes when an estimated $247 million in flood damages were prevented. Since its completion in 1965, Kinzua has prevented flood damages estimated to be in excess of $1 billion. The reservoir also provides water to be released during dry periods. These releases have the effect of reducing pollution and improving the quality and quantity of water for domestic, industrial and recreation uses. Flow regulation also helps to maintain navigable depths for commercial traffic on the Allegheny and upper Ohio Rivers. Another benefit of the Kinzua project is hydroelectric power. A power plant is operated by the First Energy Corporation. Its peak capacity is 400,000 kilowatts per hour. The Big Bend Visitor Center contains displays which illustrate the hydroelectric process.

Is it problematic to have water get behind the liner?

User Avatar
I HAVE THIS PROBLEM. THE POOL PRO I SPOKE TO SAID IT IS A PROBLEM AND IT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED. A GARDEN HOSE ATTACHED TO A PUMP BEHIND THE LINER IN A CORNER SHOULD DO IT ACCORDING TO HIM. IF IT IS A PERSISTENT PROBLEM YOU NEED TO DO IT WEEKLY. Had a vinyl liner pool 21 yrs and always have water behind liner after a major rain or water the flowers too long. We installed a PVC pipe in the corner with a cap on the end with pencil size holes drilled in the cap.Then cut a hole in the steel wall and under the walk way around the pool and attached a water hose to the end coming out with a water hose and use a utility pump to pump the water from behind the liner to a drain pipe running in a ditch away from the pool. It's a pain..but the water weight in the pool is not surpose to allow the water behind the liner to rise, but guess what?... is does. Only thing we can come up with is we have clay all the way down and have sometype of pooling to the hole. We are installing French ddrains around the pools sides this summer.Good luck with your problem with water behind the liner!

Why are smaller dams better than bigger dams?

User Avatar
The answer there is more pressure on smaller dams which creates MORE electricity. +++ Sorry but that makes no sense. The electricity generated depends on rate of flow and head available, not on dam size. In fact the higher the dam the greater the head (depth hence water-pressure at the turbine), though this can be increased still further by piping the water to a power-station situated further down the valley instead of at the dam foot. A more useful advantage of a smaller dam is its smaller environmental effect.

What are dams used for?

User Avatar
Dams are any containment system inserted in aposition to prevent a flow of liquid. Dams in watercourses These create aresevoir of water that can be used for agricultural purposes, to prevent flooding, to regulate water supplies over the year or to generate Hydroelectric Energy. Dams in Metal work Clay dams are placed around areas in broken metal work to hold fluid metal in the area until it cools. "Not worth a tinker's dam" is a remnant of this as the dried clay dam was worth nothing after use. Dental dams These rubber sheets are installed by dentitists to stop tooth bits and such from falling to the back of the patients mouth
