Relocation For China’s Three Gorges Dam Finished

From AP:

Residents in the last township to be moved to make way for the rising waters of the reservoir have been relocated, a state news agency reported Wednesday.

The emptying of Gaoyang town of Hubei province, part of a larger plan, began in August 2004 and was completed Tuesday, Xinhua News Agency reported. The government has moved nearly 1,000 households in the area in preparation for the rising water.

More than 1.4 million people have been relocated to allow for the water to rise behind the massive dam, the largest hydroelectric project in the world. The dam, which has a 410-mile long reservoir, is supposed to end flooding along the Yangtze River and provide clean energy alternative to coal.
