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.
