■Results announced

Discharge Award (Which dam had the most impressive discharge?)Takayama Dam (Kyoto Prefecture)
It appears to have been selected due to the unusual inspection discharge, which is a flush discharge from the crest gate.

Low Water Management Award (Which dam did the most impressive drought-fighting?)Aomori Prefecture, Japan
It seems that the company was recognized for fighting drought while the water storage volume was constantly declining steadily.

Event Award (Which dam held the most fan-pleasing event?): Kami Shiiba Dam (Miyazaki Pref.)
The fact that Kyushu Electric Power, an electric power company that believes that water is like money, held a discharge event seems to have garnered votes.

Flood Control Award (Which dam has done the most impressive battle against heavy rainfall?)Yamba Dam (Gunma Prefecture)
It seems that Typhoon No. 19's runoff led to an impressive debut, which was well received.

2019 Dam Awards (Which dam did people remember most this year?) :.Yamba Dam (Gunma Prefecture)
This year, the much-discussed Yamba Dam was evaluated. (And it hasn't even started operating yet.)

We would like to thank Mr. Hagiwara and the other presenters who organized the event, the backyard tabulators, and the selection committee for their hard work. Thank you very much.
