Based on the development process and trend of the roller compacted concrete dam, a new type of dam-the over lean cemented material dam was proposed. In construction of the new type of dam, the over lean cemented material was taken as the filling material, and the reinforced concrete face slab or asphalt concrete face slab was placed on the upstream face for seepage control. In this paper, the advantages and some research results of the new type of dam were introduced. It is considered that the dam type is suitable for medium-small water conservancy and hydropower projects, and it can bring great social and economic benefits.
