Initial impoundment of Kawakami Dam Begins

On December 16, 2021 (Thursday), initial impoundment of the Kawakami Dam began.
The initial impoundment is to store water up to the surcharge level (the highest water level during flooding) and check the safety of the dam itself, the discharge facilities, and the slopes around the reservoir.
At 10:00 a.m., the temporary drainage channel was closed by a gate at the signal of Mr. Tsukui, Director of the Kawakami Dam Construction Office of the Japan Water Agency.
