A splash of scenery at Liujiaxia Dam in Gansu
As the Yellow River enters the flood season in July, the water level of Liujiaxia Dam in Northwest China's Gansu province has reached a record high.
The dam started to discharge water at a speed of 2,700 cubic meters per second on July 1 in order to prevent floods throughout the flood season, as required by the General Headquarters for Flood Control of Yellow River.
