The Monción Dam is an earth-fill embankment dam on the Mao River near Monción in Santiago Rodríguez Province of the Dominican Republic. At 119 m (390 ft) tall, it is the highest dam in the country. The purpose of the dam is to produce hydroelectric power and supply water for irrigation. The dam’s power station is located downstream and contains two 26 MW Francis turbine-generators for an installed capacity of 52 MW. The dam was completed and began filling its reservoir on 22 September 2001. Its power station was commissioned on 27 April 2002.
