Llyn Brianne reservoir
Construction of the dam was completed early in 1970s. The dam is 299 feet high and 951 feet long.
In 1996 the height of the spillway was increased by 3 feet and a hydro-electric plant built at the base of the dam. The capacity of the dam was increased from 13,400million gallons to 14,200 million gallons.
Llyn Brianne was designed to control the flow of the River Towy to enable consistent water extraction further downstream to supply South Wales.
The Upper Towy Valley and Llyn Brianne is still one of the most beautiful areas of Wales however and it is a haven for bird watchers, anglers, mountain bikers and walkers.
Llyn Brianne has been popular with extreme sport enthusiasts since its association with mountain biking trails but in 2008 the 300ft tall Llyn Brianne Dam achieved national fame, or notoriety, when a video of kayakers hurling themselves down the spillway at speeds of 40mph was posted on Youtube!
