The main features of the Project include:
Earthfill dam with reservoir capacity of 15 Million cubic metres (MCM); 13 m high, 1,340 m long. Quantity of earth material, V = 320 000 m3. Associated concrete works (Bottom Outlet, Spillway, Intake Tower) for a total volume of 5 241 m3 .
Homogeneous shell fill with central clay core and filter placed on a 1.5m thickness of clay blanket.
Because of the excessive depth of the impervious layer (24 – 28m), clay blanket of thickness 1.5m with an extension of between 30 – 50m into the reservoir was constructed to control the rate of seepage flow underneath the dam body.
Development of 1,000 Hectare of irrigation scheme.
Our role on the Project included Detail Design, Preparation of Construction drawings, Work Programming, Monthly Work Valuation and general direction of the works.
