The Faraya-Chabrouh Dam is a dam above the village of Faraya, Lebanon, 40km northeast of Beirut, that was inaugurated in 2007 and is one of the largest in Lebanon. The dam has a height of 63 metres. The reservoir has a capacity of some 8 million cubic meters and is some 1300 metres in length. The dam is located in rural Lebanon and is surrounded by farmland. Agricultural lands stretch far below the Faraya-Chabrouh Dam and the water is used from the reservoir to irrigate the lands, providing an essential resource to thousands of people in the villages below.
