Contest #591: Bagre Dam, Burkina Faso

Built in 1992, the Bagre Dam in Burkina Faso has had a history of spilling over. This affects downstream areas in Burkina Faso and northern Ghana.

Money has been set aside by the Ghanaian government to build other dams downstream to capture the near-annual spillage that floods agricultural land and houses, but no dams have been built yet.

No Ferris Wheels here, but a dam:
