Three Gorges Dam lock question?

Question by doornobk: Three Gorges Dam lock question?
The Yangtze river had commercial traffic on it before the dam was constructed. I would presume during constriction that traffic was able to go around the dam site using the bypass channels that the river flowed through so no big deal there, more or less business as usual. The dam when completed would have locks and lifts to get boats up the 500+ feet to then take advantage of the deeper water and be able to reach further up river with larger loads. Sounds good on paper. My question is did they just shut down traffic for the 2 years it took to fill up? Or did they have some temporary locks in operation that were then constantly modified till they reached their final height? If that is what they did it would seem like there should be some info on it somewhere since it like the rest of the project would have been pretty new technology.
Got any links with information about the temporary locks? Ideally photos and technical info related to how they did it? Also is that a common practice when building dams?

Answer by texaslivewire360
Yes they did have temporary portable locks in place during the new construction.

How will the Three Gorges Dam make money?

Question by .: How will the Three Gorges Dam make money?
I heard about the Three Gorges Dam in China being built on the Yangtze river, and people are saying that it will cost up to 100 billion dollard- but that it will pay for itself in the long run. How will this dam make that much money?

Best answer:

Answer by Teddy Broosevelt
Hydroelectricity, I’m guessing. That’s what made the Hoover Dam such a great feat of engineering, for sure.

Yes, the construction of the 3 gorges dam making many harmful things to the environment. If you had watch the documentary, “China’s mega Dam” in National Geographic then you will know how much sacrifices was done to built the dam. But I think there’s reason why Chinese government want to build this dam. Perhaps it’s important for the development for China to become one of the world’s superpower

Q&A: What was life on the Yangtze River like before the Three Gorges Dam was built?

Question by Hawk_Nelson_Rox: What was life on the Yangtze River like before the Three Gorges Dam was built?
I had already tried googling it and I couldn’t come up with anything. Only how life after it was built. Thanks. And try to give your source or give me a website that I can go and visit myself.

Best answer:

Answer by James™
Before the dam was built, there many floods that drowned a nearby city with population of several million. In 1954, a flood killed 30,000 people and left one million homeless. But the dam prevents this sort of thing from reoccurring.

A long time before the Three Gorges Dam, the Yangtze River was used for transportation, a lot more than it does now. The large cargo ships would have raised the water level and caused even more floods. The dam has reduced the amount of transportation up/down the river helping considerably to reduce the flooding of the riverside towns and cities.

Hope this helps 🙂
