6 A 100-Year-Old Dam

A 100-Year-Old Dam


Not many people visit a small village Porogi located in the Chelyabinsk region. The place is considered very boring and an old local dam is not of a great interest to anyone. Meanwhile, the hydro-electric power plant has just celebrated its 101 anniversary and will be described in the post below.

A new hydro-electric power station was launched in 1910 next to a huge metallurgic factory built several years before that.

The huge enterprise closed 15 years ago.

Some tourists with children come to the place from the adjacent villages just to look at the beautiful waterfall.

It is not allowed to enter the dam as it is in a critical condition and can be destroyed any time.

But when a water level rises the guard goes to open the valves. That’s when it becomes possible to enter the closed territory and take pictures of the station.

The Porozhskaya hydroelectric power plant was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The dam is in a bad condition and requires repairs.
