The Golden Waterway

See video

One mile long and 600 feet high, the Three Gorges Dam on the
Yangtze River is a project of epic proportions - and controversy. The
dam, completed in 2008, created a vast reservoir extending 370 miles,
about the distance from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It brings
drinking water to northern China and generates as much electricity as
18 coal-fired power plants. But it has also displaced some two million
people and caused widespread flooding, destroying rural villages and
cultural treasures.
