Paltinu Lake

judetul Prahova, Muntenia

AddressLoc. Valea Doftanei,


Located in Prahova county, on the river Doftana downstream of its confluence with the valley Paltinoasa gorge called "La Tocile", Paltinu dam was made in 1966, the dam was put into service in 1971. A second round of consolidation has been executed in the period 1976 to 1982. The bedrock consists of sandstone with shale. The bedrock is crossed by several faults and a complex system of fissures. On the left side, there is a terrace with a width of approx. 100 m.

Paltinu Dam, because of the difficult geomorphological conditions of the site, adopted the version of a concrete arch dam with a double curve with perimeter point. This solution involved the creation of a foundation base extended on the left side with a parabolic wing. This socket allows a symetry of the section where the dam itself is executed and allows better reception modules of elasticity differences of the rock on the two slopes. Also, the socket allowed a better adaptation to local geological conditions, by stopping areas with altered rock.

With all work completed, during the first fill of the lake were seen high seepage under the pedestal, exceeding 150 l / s and displacements of the structure at the contact between the central arc and the parabolic wing. As a result, various works have been carried further including sealing veil supplement like the amplification of the drainage system. With these measures, infiltrations have stopped and the behavior of the dam and the slopes remained in acceptable limits.
