This paper presents a brief essay on the situation in which the environment of the dam of the Rio Verde Basin- ParanŠ, from the vision of environmental geomorphology. The area is located between the cities of Campo Magro and Campo Largo, ParanŠ plateau in the first part of the Alto IguaÁu basin. This study aims to raise the concepts relating to environmental geomorphology, to identify the anthropogenic impacts caused in the reservoir areas, identify the environmental compartments found around the dam and characterize the geologic and physiographic region. It was found that the area has intense anthropogenic influence, as urban growth is present in areas and wavy and rough terrain, subject to mass movements and floods. Besides these aspects, the use of land for agriculture contributes to fragility of the area.
