Degania Dam

Local nameסכר דגניה
LocationDeganya Alef, Israel

The Degania Dam is a small barrage across the Jordan River just below the Sea of Galilee near Degania Alef and Yardenit in northern Israel. The purpose of the dam is to regulate water levels in the Sea of Galilee and flows into the lower Jordan River. It has two floodgates capable of releasing 800 m3/s. The dam was completed in the early 1930s as part of the Naharayim Rutenberg hydroelectric power plant project. Although the floodgates have been opened partially in the past they were first opened fully in May 2013 after heavy spring flooding and a need to replenish the river.
