The Lianghekou Dam (meaning: "mouth of two rivers") is an under construction concrete-face rock-fill dam on the Yalong River in Yajiang County, Sichuan Province, China. The dam is located at the confluence of the Yalong, Xianshui and Qingda Rivers. The dam will be 295 m (968 ft) tall and support a 3,000 MW power station. Studies for the dam were completed between 2005 and 2009 with initial construction beginning that year.
When the dam's reservoir fills, it will force the relocation of over 4,900 people.
