I took some geology courses at university and we were told that these dams were bomb proof. The danger comes from above. Sometimes the water infiltrates into the surrounding mountains and this can cause landslides and force the water to flow over the dam. Thanks Mel!

Notice how the wall curves into the water - like an arch on its side - so the water always puts the wall in compression.. As long as the wall is properly founded (bottom and sides) and there is no excessive vibration (earthquake etc..) all is well... BTW - I am an engineer ;-)
