Dreaming of a water dam may mean that you have retained some emotions inside that need to get out. If you see a dam burst, then it means that you have lost control and perhaps you have unleashed your fury too much. Emotions run over you. A good solution is to be kind and express your feelings in a gentle and controlled manner. Victorian books about dreams interpret obstructions, hindrances, and obstacles as harbingers of problems that will occur soon. Dams, therefore, fall into this category.
