Bajo Frio Dam

Project Details

The dam's engineering is a testament to modern design and functionality. This impressive structure is equipped with two advanced spillways. The first showcases a 90-meter-long free nappe, capable of handling a significant drainage capacity of 2,100 m3/s.

In contrast, the secondary spillway is characterized by two chutes, each measuring 6 x 5 m, designed for an evacuation capacity of 700 m3/s. Such a configuration ensures the dam's effective management of water flow, even under challenging conditions, reflecting a blend of engineering prowess and safety considerations.
