Abstract: This paper describes the studies carried out for the type of dam selection for the Ita Hydroelectric Project. Drastic rainfall conditions, large river diversion flows and an abundance of construction materials from required excavations were the main factors to be considered. The CFRD proved to be the most suitable solution under these conditions.
