Haba River Shankou Dam
The Haba River Shankou Dam (Chinese: 哈巴河山口水电站; pinyin: Hǎbā hé Shānkǒu shuǐdiànzhàn, Haba River Shankou Hydroelectric Station) is a concrete-face rock-fill dam on the Haba River, a tributary of the Irtysh. It is located in Habahe County of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China. The primary purpose of the dam is hydroelectric power generation, flood control and water supply for civil and irrigation use. It supports a 25.2 MW power station.
