Monumental Dam

Technicians enter the Itaipu dam to perform daily maintenance operations near Foz do Iguacu, Brazil, on Oct. 18. The hydroelectric dam, on the border between Brazil and Paraguay, is owned jointly by the two countries. The dam supplies almost 17 percent of the energy consumed in Brazil and 73 percent of Paraguayan demand, according to Itaipu Binacional, the dam's operator.
