Long earthen embankments were built to store water for Sri Lankan cities from the 4th century BC. One of these early embankments was raised in 460 AD to a height of 34 metres and was the world’s highest dam for more than a millennium later. King Parakrama Babu, a 12th century Sinhalese ruler notorious as a tyrant and megalomaniac, boasted to have built and restored more than 4,000 dams. One old embankment.
There are principally two types of surface impoundments, a water retention type dam, and a raised embankment that has many configurations (Vick 1990). The main difference is that a water retention dam is constructed to its full height before any discharge to the impoundment (EPA 1994). Raised embankment dams are built higher as the requirement to store more tailings and process/storm water becomes apparent.
Rock-fill dams are embankments of compacted free-draining granular earth with an impervious zone. The earth utilized often contains a high percentage of large particles hence the term rock-fill. The impervious zone may be on the upstream face and made of masonry, concrete, plastic membrane, steel sheet piles, timber or other material. The impervious zone may also be within the embankment in which case it is referred to as a core.
