Construction: Started in 1981 and ended in 1988.
Length of the crest: 1900m
Height: Small height of 26.0m.
The dam of Stratos is an earth fill dam with a core of clay. It is founded on gravel and sand and in its base there is a cut off diaphragm wall. The diaphragm wall has a depth of 25m from the surface and is used to decrease the leaking below the dam, which may create damages to the dam.
Below you may find information on deformation monitoring and photos of the dam.
These are three spots from which measurements of the deformations of the dam are taken. The one is not used anymore because of the small building constructed. The other two are used to measure with geodetic equipment the deformation of each side of the dam. The horizontal and vertical deformation is calculated. Maximum vertical deformation on the crest of the dam: 22mm.
This is the view of the dam from where the measurements are taken. You may see the points in each side of the dam where the deformation is measured.
