Rockfill embankment dams have a mound of loose rock covered with a waterproof layer on the upstream side. The waterproof layer may be made of concrete, flat stone panels, or other impervious materials. Zoned-embankment dams include an impervious core surrounded by a mound of material that water can penetrate. The supporting mound is usually made of loose rock or earth. The core might be built from concrete, steel, clay, or any impervious materials. Embankment dams hold back water by the force of gravity acting upon their mass. Embankment dams require more material because loose rock and earth are less dense than concrete. Engineers often choose to build them if the materials are readily available. Our Tarbela Dam contains more than 126 million cubic metres earth and rock. This amounts to more than 15 times the volume of concrete used in the Grand Coulee Dam. Gravity dams hold back water only by the sheer force of their weight pushing downward.
