Murwani Dam

The dam was built in the Murwani Valley 27 kilometers east of the town of Khulays and 100 kilometers northeast of the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and designed for flood control as well as feeding underground water sources. Impermeability in the 91 m high (from the foundation) rock-fill dam was achieved by using an asphalt-core.
