Thousands of years of water in the dam is a flow of less than 3000 cubic meters per second. If the water work did not stand, the flood would probably have swept Púchov and other villages around Váh.
More than 55,000 volunteers participated in the construction, and the construction also required the displacement of part of the flooded area. Today, the dam completes the landscape around the meanders of the original Váh riverbed between Považská Bystrica and Nosice.

Today, in addition to economic use, the dam has an important place in the entire ecosystem of the Váh as a refuge for river birds, plants and animals.
