This work shows the stability analysis which is carried out on the dam body (section, seepage and slope) of the main and auxiliary dams of Mekin hydropower plant. Based on the results of the design of the structure of the dam body, the calculations of the seepage and slope stability of the dam are done using numerical methods implemented on the Earth and Rockfill dam slide slope stability analysis (STAB) software.
