The Darbandikhan Dam (Kurdish: Bandawie Darbandixan) is a multi-purpose embankment dam on the Diyala River in northern As Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraq. It was constructed between 1956 and 1961. The purpose of the dam is irrigation, flood control, hydroelectric power production and recreation. Due to poor construction and neglect, the dam and its 249 MW power station have undergone several repairs over the years. A rehabilitation of the power station began in 2007 and is expected to be complete in 2012.
