Many are claiming this is the biggest dam

Who will solve the water problems , for others this dam on the Yamouni Fawlak of previous earthquake will provoke a massive earthquake that will destroy Lebanon

    So either way, the water problem will be solved. No lie there.

    Hope the earthquake story is false but a PHD professor from AUB believe it will happen

    Care to elaborate? And what does this have to do with Besri?

    If one needs to acquire an earthquake machine for personal use, whom should one address this query to?

    Actually the project is attacked the most for ruining marej basri and its beauty while still failing to become full .

    If water go underground 20 km
    This might provoke an earthquake
    it's actually dams that are deeper than 100m that have been known to cause earthquakes

    hahahahaha

    AUB and their professors
    has zero instruments to measure such things

    let them stick to subjects they know about

    As I understood, the issue is that the dam will be built in an area with tectonic activities.
    So any earthquake might distabilise the dam or break it, releasing millions of tons of water that will flood and destroy many villages in it's path.

    Dams with a depth higher than 100m have been known to cause earthquakes

    Induced seismicity - Wikipedia

    Reservoir-induced seismic events can be relatively large compared to other forms of induced seismicity. Though understanding of reservoir-induced seismic activity is very limited, it has been noted that seismicity appears to occur on dams with heights larger than 330 feet (100 m). The extra water pressure created by large reservoirs is the most accepted explanation for the seismic activity.[20] When the reservoirs are filled or drained, induced seismicity can occur immediately or with a small time lag.

    It's not just concern over an earthquake destabilising the dam, it's concern over the dam itself

    Actually AUB has multiple geophysicists among its staff and their professors have been frequently published in seismology journals.
