Serlui B dam, is an earthfill and gravity dam on Serlui river 12 km from Bilkhawthlir Village near Kolasib district in the state of Mizoram in India. Construction on the dam with 12 MW hydroelectric power station began in 2003 and was completed in 2009 but there were some leakages which delayed commissioning of the Hydel Project.[1] Serlui B Dam has been constructed by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and Metallurgical Electrical Consultant India Ltd. (MECON).Plans are being drawn up by the Mizoram Tourism Department to develop tourist infrastructure since the area near the Dam is thickly forested with a 53 km scenic lake in the middle of it.[2] Serlui B Dam is also being developed as a pisculture center with lakhs of fishes released into the dam in 2009.[3]
