El Cajon Dam was built in Honduras in 1985. Its height is 226 meters and length 282 meters. This dam was built on the Comayagua River that has the wild and headlong stream. The dam had to minimize the threat of flooding of this area. Engineers from the whole world took part in the building of this dam. There were specialists from Germany, Italy and even Switzerland.
The dam has quite big and complex underground engine-room. Since the building, El Cajon Dam is a huge industrial building in Honduras. The dam construction is very thin and firm at once. This cut back on spending material and money.
The main function of the dam is the electricity output and flood prevention for a great area. Since the dam building, this region became safe from tragic floods. During the rainy season, the dam keeps huge water volumes. The agricultural line has also improved with the advent of the dam. Earlier during the drought season, the fields suffered from the lack of water. Now they can be irrigated throughout the year. Next - Xiluodu Daba
