World-wide there are about 45,000 dams. They are mainly used for drinking water supply, flood protection, service water supply to industry and agriculture and the generation of energy. To prevent dam breaks or the uncontrolled overflow of the water dammed up, almost all of today’s dams are equipped with a bottom outlet. Its structure depends on the design capacity of the dam and is calculated based on the volume of the storage basin and its tributaries and discharge quantities. Valves are used to open, close and control the bottom outlet.
