Water Mark Three Gorges Reservoir

Water level will rise to 175.1 meters after the completion of the dam at the Three Gorges on the Yangzi River. The middle section of the Yangzi in central China is an ideal place build a reservoir, where high mountains stand on the two sides of China's greatest river. The world's biggest water-control hydraulic-power project was completed a few years ago, creating a large body of water that extends hundreds of kilometers long, from Yichang in Hubei Province to Chongqing City upstream.
