Cleveland Dam


North Vancouver, Canada (CA)
The Cleveland Dam is a concrete dam at the head of the Capilano River in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada that holds back Capilano Lake. Part of the Capilano River Regional Park, it is not used for generating hydroelectricity, but rather for storing a portion of the Lower Mainland's drinking water. It was completed in 1954, and is named after Ernest Cleveland, first chief commissioner of the Greater Vancouver Water District.
