[Rumoi Dam and Lake Chibaberi] Unusual Shape Dam and Lake Branched into Two

Lake Chibaberi and Rumoi Dam

Lake Chibaberi (チバベリ湖) is a man-made lake in the southeastern part of Rumoi city, and is also the unusual lake that its shape is branched into two. Rumoi Dam (留萌ダム) was built in 2009, and the lake was born. The water surface is 2.2 km2. Because the dam is new, I suppose that it is considered environment and a scenery. Its appearance is the unusual dam, too. The Rumoi Dam is a central core model rock-fill dam made of soil and rocks for flood control and water utilization without an artifact of the concrete. Its height is about 41 m. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
