Feasibility Studies of the Integration Project of the São Francisco River with hydrographic basins of the north-east of Brazil, totaling about 580 km of canals, 25 dams and 10 tunnels. The dams: 11 of rockfill with clayey core; three of CCRs; nine homogeneous ones of compacted soil; a homogeneous mixed soil compacted and CCR; and a mixed CCR and clayey-core rockfill. The feasibility studies were followed by the Basic Designs of Segments I and VI, constituted by 244 km of canals, aqueducts, tunnels, pipelines, lift stations and nine dams, totaling more than five million cubic meters, with heights varying from 20 to 50 m crest length up to 3,097 m.
