At Widen, we consider ourselves digital asset management (DAM) experts. But here’s the thing…we like all kinds of dams! And for good reason. Not only can they be simply awe-inspiring feats of engineering, but they also provide a range of economic, environmental, and social benefits; including recreation, flood control, water management, drinking water, hydroelectric power, and river transportation.
Here is a list of our top eight dams of all time.
8. Robert-Bourassa Dam
Where: Quebec, Canada
7. Verzasca Dam (or Contra Dam)
6. Roosevelt Dam
5. Fort Peck Dam
4. Jean Claude Van Damme
3. The Hoover Dam
2. The world's largest beaver dam

Of course we had to put ourselves on the list! After all, the Widen Collective® is engineered to be an award-winning DAM solution, it helps global brands around the world save energy through workflow efficiencies, and attracts millions of visitors every year.
