Bogor Katulampa Dam


Built in 1911; the dam becomes so crucial in rainy season; because it controls the flood (from Ciliwung River) that comes to Jakarta (capital city of Indonesia). The dam starts its alert condition since the water level is above normal height (80 cm). If the water level continues high, it can be predicted that the flood will arrive at Jakarta in eight hours ahead.

a lot of water. My husband is a water engineer. He likes to go to dams, and now I like to go to take photos.
