Hirakud Dam, Orissa

Hirakud Dam is built across the Mahanadi River, about 15 km from Sambalpur in the state of Odisha in India. Behind the dam extends a lake, Hirakud Reservoir, 55 km long. It is one of the first major multipurpose river valley projects started after India’s independence. The dam helps control floods in the Mahanadi delta and irrigates 75,000 square kilometres of land. The dam supports two different hydroelectric power houses.
