Shih-Gang Dam

Just had a great tour of Shih-Gang Dam. This dam was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1999. Approximately 90% of the dam was raised 10 meters, that’s about 32 feet for the metrically challenged.  The dam was repaired and is still functional.  The pipe was for water supply that was destroyed in the earthquake. The other picture shows the old dam height on the right and the new repaired dam height on the left. Those are both in a memorial park.

Moving onto lunch.  Sushi!!
