Description of the turning point
In addition to the direct function of a hydroelectric power station (electricity production since 1964), it performs a protective function against the "big water" of residential areas located below 103 m above sea level. In addition, the presence of a reservoir improves navigation conditions, especially in the period of shallow water.
The Kiev hydroelectric power station is designed for 100 years of operation and has 3 degrees of protection against water breakthrough: a concrete dam, a drainage channel and an earthen dam 70 km long.
