Dams

Dam-Reservoir Info and Impact Archive - impact information on dams, water diversions, impoundments, and hydroelectric projects, and related links.

International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) -In addition to the three classical criteria of technical, economic and financial feasibility, dam projects have to satisfy a fourth and particularly stringent criterion, namely social and political acceptance. Today the decisive factor for such acceptance, ranking on a par withdam safety, is compatibility with the environment.

World Commission on Dams - Formed to review the development effectiveness of large dams and assess alternatives; develop a framework for assessing options and decision-making processes for water resources, energy services and development; and develop internationally-acceptable criteria and guidelines for planning, designing, construction, operation, monitoring, and decommissioning of dams.
