    Weirs and barrages are different types of ’run–of–river’ dams, this means that while they raise the water level upstream they create only a small reservoir (’head pond’) and cannot effectively regulate downstream flows. A weir is normally a low wall of stone, concrete or wicker. A barrage can be a huge structure ten or twenty metres.

According to Save the Blue Heart of Europe, in Macedonia, which has built dozens of dams in recent years, 22 dams are now under construction and more are planned. In Albania, 81 hydropower dams are now being built and are planned.

Serbia is considering the construction of hydropower projects, the Blue Heart campaign says. The "Small Dam Design and Construction Manual" provides engineering criteria, methods, guidelines, and standards for the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of relatively small storage dam facilities.

This chapter presents the importance of geotechnical engineering on the site selection, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of earth-rock dams and earth structures; it emphasizes the geotechnical engineering work related to dam safety during the operation stage.

Preliminary geological studies required to select the best dam site are described : Raúl Flores-Berrones, Norma Patricia López-Acosta. When I gave talks on my recent book, initially concluded that the abysmally low levels in the mainstream were due to low precipitation in the broad Mekong Basin.

RUN OF THE RIVER DAMS: “DROWNING MACHINES” The most dangerous hazard on a river is a low-head dam. These dams are on rivers and streams throughout Pennsylvania, and they are true “drowning machines.” Water going over a dam creates a back current or undertow that can pull a boat into the turbulence and capsize it.

Low head dam accident survivor Warren Rosenthal covers safety on the river, specifically about low-head dams (LHD) and his July 9, encounter with a LHD. He brings a simulator model so that participants can view up close the hydraulic recirculation that the dams cause that makes them dangerous.
