A dam is a barrier that impounds water and is constructed from a variety of materials such as rock, wood, steel and concrete. It serves the primary purpose of retaining water, to manage or prevent water flow into specific land regions and furthermore to collect water or for storage of water which can be evenly distributed between locations. The picture shows the Chadwick Lakes water reservoir filled to the brim after heavy rainfall. This early dam system was constructed in 1886 under the direction of Sir Oswald Chadwick with the intention of using this magnificent resource in a more sustainable manner.
