400 Chinese dams ‘in danger’

CHINESE authorities have reported dangerous situations at more than 400 reservoirs after this week’s deadly earthquake, state-run television said today, citing officials. Some 391 reservoirs, two of them major ones, had “dangerous situations” across five provinces including worst-hit Sichuan, CCTV said, quoting officials from the National Development and Reform Commission.

Authorities in Chongqing, a major metropolis next to Sichuan, also reported problems in 19 reservoirs, the TV report said.
