Energy and water resources - IGCSE Geography - Revision guide - TTS LibGuides at Tanglin Trust School Factors Affecting the Selection of Site for Dams 1) Good topographical location along the path of river: The best location along the path of the river is river canyon or at the location where there is narrowing of the river. If the aim is to store maximum amount of water, then the volume of basin above dam should be calculated so that sufficient quantity of water can be stored in it. The perfect site is one where there is wide and flat valley. 2) Right geological structure: The rock structure on which the dam will be constructed should be strong enough to sustain the weight of dam and water stored in the dam. 3) Sufficient water is available: The flow of water where dam is constructed should be sufficient enough to fill the dam. People living around the areas where storage basin is going to be constructed and the areas that will be submerged should be convinced to move from there and they should be given proper compensation and suitable resettlement areas.
