Beli Iskar Dam is one of the oldest hydrotechnical equipment in this country. It is included into the portable-water-supply system of Sofia city and serves as a complementary volume to Iskar Dam, which is the main water sourse. It was put into operation in 1942. As a result of the long operation period the swift-run, the nergy-quenching equipment and the supporting walls have been strongly damaged and even lacking in some places. Reconstruction works were done as follows:

  • Constructing of energy-quenching equipment with a spillway sillq giant walls and risberm;
  • Reconstruction of concrete walls;
  • Reconstruction of stone facing at the bottom of the swift-run;
  • Processing and consolidaiton of the trench spillway gaps.
