This is a low head river and low heads have a turbulence just under the dam wall,this turbulance contains strong currents that are very dangerous.These currents are caused by the water falling from the above water drainage this makes the water spin and make pressure under the dam,
Most people have gone missing and never found in such dams that are low head,they get pushed down under the base of the water and either get stuckon the rocks or get eaten by water creatures.Any dam can be a danger threat even a high head dam or a normal dam,no one knows what might be under the dam at that moment so people who go swimming are considered to stay at shallow ends of the water.
low head dams contain heavy pressures that pull anything down and some have been restricted for swimming and fishing,most people feel that there is nothing wrong if you can swim but still that doesnt change the fact that anyone can drown in a dam or a river because still waters are different to moving water and the currents are much heavier in dams and rivers.
