News Category: Cultural

 13 November 2005

 

 

Deputy energy minister for water affairs Friday announced that the controversial Sivand Dam will not be filled with water unless Cultural Heritage authorities are satisfied that the dam will not harm to ancient Pasargad site, IRNA reported.


Speaking during a visit to Sivand Dam, Rasoul Zargar added that a meeting of lawmakers, officials from Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization and water experts from the Energy Ministry ended inconclusively.


“Although the construction of the dam began in 1995, operations were delayed until 2001 due to technical problems and the need for utilizing modern technology,“ Zargar added.


Sivand Dam is an earth-filled dam whose height is 72 meters and it has a crown of 67 meters in length. Its reservoir capacity is 255 million cubic meters.


Sivand Dam is being built on a river by the same name in Pasargad district north of Shiraz.


It is located 50 kilometers from Persepolis and 10 km from Pasargad.
