Whatever the nature and the location of dams, the problem of waterproofness of plates on the one hand and the continuous water leaks on the other hand, have always been one of the most important concerns of the designers. The geological studies and particularly the fracturing of the site of dam of Tabellout do not seem to have been well conducted. Indeed, the waterproofness risks to be compromised. In view of our statement on the spot of the fracturing of the way of being completed and the under surface one which will be deduced from the tomographic images, the geological study of the site of the dam were clearly valued. The present work was meant to draw attention to and raise awareness of the likely risks of water leaks that can jeopardize the global restraints.
