The construction began in and was completed in The dam and the hydroelectric power plant , which went into service after the upfilling of the reservoir was completed in , are operated by the State Hydraulic Works DSİ. Two more dams on the river have been under construction. The dam was depicted on the reverse of the Turkish one-million- lira banknotes of —  and of the 1 new lira banknote of — The initial development project for the southeastern region of Turkey was presented in As the objectives for regional development have changed significantly and the ambitions have grown in the s, the original plan underwent major modifications.

Van Veterinary Journal. Zotero Mendeley EndNote. Factors affecting heavy metals uptake and distribution have also been discussed separately. The amounts of heavy metals were quantified by an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer ICPMS.
The results showed that the metal concentrations in water were significantly higher than the value of standart drinking water recommended by the WHO and USEPA but metal concentrations in mussels were generally lower than the levels for mussels recommended by World Health Organization WHO.
Only levels of arsenic and lead were higher than permissible limits in all sampling points and seasons. Metal residue levels were higher in the sediments than in the water and mussel. Fe was the predominant residue in water and mussel samples as to Mn was dominant in sediment samples.
