    Yes. I grew up in the area. Significantly controlled flooding, which used to wipe out thousands of acres of farmland every year. Also, a by product is that about 15% of the electricity in that area comes from hydroelectric dams. All the man-made lakes in the area have contributed to the economy (tourism).
