The dam is an earth-filled embankment dam with a clay core as watertight element; the shoulders will be made of river sandy gravels. The reservoir will contain about 20 million m³ of water. The length and height of the crest will be about 400 m and 30 m respectively.
Aim of monitoring:
A SHM system will be installed for monitoring the dam’s behavior during construction, first impoundment, and operation phases. The instruments will be installed inside or on the surface of the dam’s body, in the foundation, on the abutments, and close to the downstream toe of the dam.
