Studies on increasing Shahid Abbaspour Dam operation level
Considering the presence of Karun 3 and Karun 4 dams upstream of Shahid Abbaspour Dam and the positive effect of these dams on flood control and improved regulation of inflow to Shahid Abbaspour Dam and enough time for preventive measures on reducing the reservoir level, it is not necessary to reach a free height of 9.5 m. Therefore, an increase in the level of operation of Shahid Abbaspour Dam was taken into consideration by the client to change regulating volume and hydroelectric power generation
