The water level at the Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest water control and utilization project, reached 175 meters on Oct 26, 2010. The 175-meter mark, a milestone in the construction of the gigantic reservoir, would enable the project to fulfill its functions of flood control, power generation, navigation and water supply to the fullest extent.
