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 🙂
