Dam Construction

Location: Poonthottam, India

Here's some photos of the construction of a dam at Poonthottam done purely with manual labour.

Sand is carried out and rocks lowered down

A grand hole has been dug in the earth

Rocks are lowered into the hole

The rocks are smashed to size. Indian safety boots standard issue on site.

The dirt loaded up from below

Cemented into place

Dirt then carried out and packed behind the rock wall

Where's your safety boots buddy?

Its all a balancing act
