The Lizhou Dam is a arch dam on the Muli River in Muli Tibetan Autonomous County, Sichuan Province, China. The primary purpose of the dam is hydroelectric power generation and when commissioned it will support a 355 MW power station. Water from the dam will be sent to a power station about 14.5 km (9.0 mi) to the southeast. The difference in elevation between the reservoir and power station will afford a hydraulic head (water drop) of 177 m (581 ft). Preliminary construction on the project began in 2009 and the superstructures were approved in 2011. Pouring of roller-compacted concrete for the dam began in 2012. The dam began to impound its reservoir in December 2015.
