. Maximum height above foundations of 36,5 m and crown with total length of 98 m;
. Bleeder sized for a maximum flow of 186,6 m3/s, consisting of a single free discharger (type Creager) by the discharge channel on the badges below the dam, ending a ski jumping hill;
. Bottom discharge (Ø800 mm) inserted in the dam body and sized for a maximum flow of 2,1 m3/s;
. Water supply for irrigation (Ø400 mm) in the upstream face of the dam.
The irrigation water system uses a main conduit FFD cast iron (Ø400 mm), with 2 valves in high density polyethylene (Ø225 mm), one for each bank of the river.
