Dam is an important way of water-resources utilization in large rivers. Dam construction has played significant roles in flood control, irrigation, navigation, and energy supply; however, the enormous negative effects, such as landslides, ecological problems, and water quality decline, could surpass positive gains. In these days, the water has become the most important need of everyone. In the monsoon season, there is over amount of water. Because of no facility of storage of water, this amount of water is being wasted. On the other side, in the summer season, there is no water for daily use only. So, our main concept for this project is to give better storage system of water to all villagers and to keep water in storage & use it in every season. The present study motives to design a dam proposed on Wakal river basin. The suitable dam site & its healthy catchment is very helpful in putting the reservoir. Extensive experiments of rock fragments and soil practical's have been done, major survey's on seven possible dam sites were carried out, testing have been followed by laboratory analysis. It was observed that the dam site has rocky foundation which is suitable & gravity dam may be constructed. To control flood, Gravity dam may be preferred. Various other observation will be carried out in future in addition the perform tests. Analysis of flood magnitude has been done using rational method, Empirical formulas, and Geological surveys & by software various analysis has been done. Proposal of constructing dam on Wakal river basin has been checked and it has been found that gravity concrete dam may be proposed to construct at the basin.
