Why Are Dams Important?

Answer

Dams are used to contain water within their reservoirs during times of ample supply. When natural water supply is low, water from the reservoir can be released to meet demand. They are also used to create hydroelectric power, as well as preventing flooding in highly-susceptible areas.The largest man-made reservoir? The Hoover Dam on Lake Mead, storing 24 acre feet of water.
