can you provide some specific examples of negative impacts from dams? Can you think of any "ripple effect" impacts or additional unforeseen impacts of dams?
Weegy: The first effect of a dam is to alter the pattern of disturbances that the plants and animals of a river have evolved for. Many aquatic animals coordinate their reproductive cycles with annual flood seasons. [ Every flood is valuable in that it takes nutrients from the land and deposits them in the river, providing food for the stream's residents. Floods also provide shallow backwater areas on vegetated and shaded riversides; the young of many animals depend on these backwaters to protect them from large predators. As an example, a fish on a certain river may only reproduce during April of every year so that its offspring will have abundant food and places to hide. If the flood never comes because a dam holds the river back (because people want the water for themselves), the offspring may be produced during a time when they cannot possibly survive. If the fish can wait until the next flood, which may be in July or may be in October, its young will be born during the wrong time of year, and will have to contend with the absence of their normal food supply and temperatures for which they are not prepared. Vegetation, too, depends upon these regular cycles of flood. Quite often, people will decide that they can spare no water at all and no flooding will occur. Or they may have built the dams specifically to stop flooding, so they can build houses in the floodplains. When this happens, riparian vegetation, the vegetation bordering the river, changes forever. An example of this may be found in much of the Southwest United States, where enormous floodplains of cottonwood and marsh have been replaced by dry, barren areas of tamarisk and grass. ] (More)

There are question that are asked when new dams need to be build. The people want to know why is the dam needed and will it be useful to the environment?
Weegy: Dam are built to provide a reservoir of water for industry and domestic use, or to provide water for a hydropower scheme, or to provide water for irrigation. User: Do you agree? Some positive aspects of dams can include the fact that they can help control flooding and they can create another place for the excessive water to run to. While controlling flooding dams can also be used to provide water for local use and can even be used to create electric power. Weegy: I certainly agree. User: why? Weegy: because Dam are built to provide a reservoir of water for industry and domestic use, or to provide water for a hydropower scheme, or to provide water for irrigation. User: Do you agree with this statement? What are some alternative to dams? · Other forms of run offs · Other forms of power plants · Irrigation systems · Better water pumping systems · Underground water control (More)

Dams are expensive to build, a lot of small towns and villages of people are forced to move out sometimes in order for these dams to be built, which causes a lot of families to lose their crops which is how they support their families. Areas of water are lost such as waterfalls, and small fish runs. Animals that depend on this water have to find another source of nutrients or they begin to die.
Weegy: Many dams and their associated reservoirs are designed completely or partially to aid in flood protection and control. [ [ Many large dams have flood-control reservations in which the level of a reservoir must be kept below a certain elevation before the onset of the rainy/summer melt season so as to allow a certain amount of space in which floodwaters can fill. The term dry dam refers to a dam that serves purely for flood control without any conservation storage ] ] (More)
