Panchet Dam is an earthen dam constructed on Damodar River at Panchet. The dam was constructed under the highly popular and ambitious multipurpose river valley project, called the Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC). The overall project was taken as the first river valley project in post independent India that included a number of dams, hydro power stations and a barrage. The Panchet dam site is located in District Dhanbad, State Jharkhand and was commissioned in 1958. The site is about 20 KM from Asansol an industrial town of West Bengal. The dam and its catchment area fall in both Jharkhand and West Bengal State of India [1, 2, 5].
