Answer:
The construction of dams for production of electricity adversely affects the environment of the place in the following ways:

(i) Large areas of agricultural land and human habitation are to be sacrificed as they get submerged.

(ii) Large eco-systems are destroyed when submerged under the water in dams.

(iii) The vegetation which is submerged rots under anaerobic conditions and gives rise to large amounts of methane which is a green-house gas.
