In the wake of torrential rains in northern Mazandaran Province over the past four weeks, the biggest dam in the region -- Shahid Rajaee Dam -- is expected to overflow as a result of which the dam's hydroelectric capacity would double, operator of the dam said Tuesday.
"The dam, located 40 kilometers south of the provincial capital Sari, has four power stations which were operational for three months last year. But they will work for six months in the current fiscal that started on March 21," Hassan Norouz-Mohammadi was quoted as saying by IRNA.
