Low-head dams are dangerous structures that essentially extend from one side of the shore of a river to another. Low-head dams to block the path of the water part and the water that moves over the dam produces a strong circular current at the bottom of the dam. Low-head dams are dangerous for small boats and rowing boats, because the strong circular current below the dam can capture small ships and rowing boats and pull them under the dam.
