National dam level average now over 50 percent PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 16 January 2017 17:41

The national dam level average is now over 50 percent, a relief for many Zimbabweans as the low water levels have an impact across many sectors of the economy.

Statistics from the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) indicate that the national dam level average now stands at 50,4 percent, up from 39,1 percent at the beginning of the rainy season.

Lake Chivero is now at 72,1% full, Manyame is 83.1%, Harava dam 100%, Kushinga Phikelela dam 100% and Wenimbi dam also at full capacity.

ZINWA Spokesperson, Mrs Marjorie Munyonga said it is worrisome that dams such as Osbourne, Whitewaters, Sebakwe, Gwenhoro, Mutirikwi and Mazowe, which supply major towns and cities, are yet to reach full capacity.

The 2015 to 2016 drought has been cited as accounting for the low dam level average at the beginning of the 2016 to 2017 rainy season.

The holding capacity of many of the country’s dams has been compromised by the high levels of siltation caused by stream bank cultivation among other factors.
