Fact of the Day
Guaira Falls was the original waterfall in the location. The Itaipu Dam build atop of the falls is now one of the world's largest hydroelectric power generators. It is comparable to the United States' Hoover Dam with only a few trillion less cubic feet of water to hold back (1.24 trillion - 1.02 trillion) [source]. The awesome amount of power generated by the dam powers 25% of Brazil and almost 80% of Paraguay.
What makes many refer to this construction as a marvel and wonder of the modern world? The fact that the Rio ParanŠ (ParanŠ River) had to be rerouted around the dam to create the desired power with the required amount of control.
