The Batang Ai dam is a concrete-face rock-fill dam near Lubok Antu in southwestern Sarawak, which was completed in 1985. The adjacent reservoir has an area of 90 km². The power station of the dam has four 25 MW turbines, with a total power generation capacity of 100 MW. With the flooding of the Ai river valley, approximately 3000 people from 26 longhouses had to be relocated.
