One of the most impressive wonders of the world, few know that it is the work of a Dark Iron dwarf. Indeed, its construction was overseen by the great Dark Iron architect Franclorn Forgewright, who invented the "stonewrought" method.
World of Warcraft
The Dam was destroyed when Deathwing flew over it, resulting in most of the water of the Loch flowing out and into the Wetlands. The Twilight's Hammer further destroyed the dam with the Twilight Landshaper. The area was mostly abandoned, though a group of surveyors under Forba Slabchisel's lead were investigating the damage done.
The dam workers are no longer present since its destruction and might be dead.

In the RPG
East of Algaz Gate, along Loch Modan's northern shore, is Stonewrought Dam. This massive piece of dwarven architecture traps the snowmelt from Ironforge Mountain, creating the lake. Chief Engineer Hinderweir VII oversees the dam. Few know it, but Stonewrought Dam is the work of a Dark Iron dwarf. Franclorn Forgewright was a master architect before the War of the Three Hammers and the name "Stonewrought" refers to his works.
- In this concept map for Warcraft II, it is indicated a dam was in the region of the Thandol Valley instead of a bridge. It may have inspired the Stonewrought Dam.
