Dam Levels above 50%
WATER levels at Gweru’s supply dams have risen to above 50%, as the city continues to receive rain, compared to below average capacity recorded at the same time last year.

Recent statistics show that the city’s three supply dams are an average 71% full, up from 45% recorded late last year.

According to statistics from the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa), the city’s main water source, Gwenoro Dam now stands at 61,1%, while White Waters and Amapongokwe are at 83% and 70,8% full, respectively.

“The levels of dams in the city have significantly improved and as at January 16, 2017, Gwenoro is at 61,1%, while White Waters and Amapongokwe are at 83% and 70,8% respectively,” Zinwa corporate communications officer for Midlands, Obert Muchena said.

He said dams in the Sanyati catchment area were at an average 73,6% full, an increase of 11,5% from the 53,4% recorded as at January 3 this year.

He urged people to practice water harvesting as a way of addressing the water challenges faced in the region.

In August last year, most major dams in the southern region were below 30% capacity, a situation that forced some cities to introduce tight water rationing measures.
