Tokyo, Japan

Review:

This documentary prepared by the Japan Commission on Dams (JCOLD) presents an excellent chronological historical record of dams in Japan, the current role of their dams and Japan’s vision of the role that dams will play in the future.

This book is recommended reading for water resources planners, dam engineers, stakeholders for water projects and the public.

Arthur H. Walz, Jr., Former Vice President: International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD)
