Project Details


The project consists in the construction of a water dam to use the water resources from the lower part of the Yaque del Sur river's basin and for the development of irrigation infrastructure, which will allow to regulate and optimize the use of water flow for stable human consumption. Among some of the benefits the dam will bring is it will allow the expansion of the irrigation area and guarantee the irrigation of an area ocassionally and poorly watered. Another benefit the dam will provide is it will increase the agricultural production and it will favor flood control. The dam is part of Monte Grande Multipurpose Project.
