    Looking at the structure of the dam, it just does not look right; even for an earth dam, I would expect ribbed bracing. They should bring in the Dutch to take a look (when they stop laughing at it)

    Given it was built in 1891 I suspect the engineering has moved on a bit since then.

    Your google-fu is tulipe.

    The reservoir had been around for ~60 years by 1891!
