The water level behind the Three Gorges Dam, has risen to 175 meters. This marks the third consecutive successful trial for the dam, following ones in 2010, and 2011.

The Three Gorges Dam is the world's largest water control project. It's expected to soon be put to full use for flood prevention, electricity production, water transportation and supply.

The waters behind the dam will eventually create a 660 kilometres long reservoir. It's hoped this will help improve transportation in the region. In the mean time, work will be done to improve the scenery along the Yangtze River, a major tourist attraction.
