Kariba Dam water levels continue to rise

General News Kariba Dam water levels continue to rise

Zambezi River Authority(ZRA) Chief Executive Officer, Munyaradzi Munodawafa says the water Levels at Kariba Dam have continued rising due to increased inflows coming from the Kariba upper and lower catchments.

ZANIS reports that Mr Munodawafa said the water levels have increased by 25 percent since March this year.

“The lake levels have increased by a total of 1. 21 meters, that is, from the level of 480.76 meters recorded on 3rd March, 2021 to a lake level of 481.97 meters with a live storage of 30.30 billion cubic meters recorded on April 7, 2021,” he said.

He stated that water allocation for power generation at the Kariba Dam is maintained at 30 billion cubic meters shared between Zambia and Zimbabwe until a scheduled hydrological review at the end of the second quarter of 2021.

Mr Munodawafa also reiterated that the Authority monitored river flows at gauging stations in Chavuma and Victoria falls with water levels at Chavuma gauging station recording an increase of 1,104 cubic meters per second closing at 3,396 cubic meters per second.

He further said the Victoria Falls gauging station is however experiencing recession but is expected to record a second peak as per historical hydrological cycle.

“The Authority remains committed to its work of prudently managing the Kariba Dam, and will continue to monitor the hydrological outlook of the Kariba Catchment and make necessary adjustments in the reservoir operations,” he said.

  3. Can you imagine with ALL the pressure of those waters becoming extreme, the whole WALL would collapse – leaving the whole of Zambia in total darkness for a long, long time. Please Zambians, let’s utilise the free solar POWER from the Heavens we shall regret some day soon

  4. Meanwhile the evil prayers of upnd f00ls have not been answered. These evil a55holes are willing to pray for drought even in their own stronghold just to get to state house. How evil do you have to be to do such a thing.

  8. Still, some dull people will turn blind eyes to such achievement and say that PF is doing this for votes. I mean does this water will get evaporate after elections??? ????????

  9. I believe that even HH’s supporters would be silently voting for President Lungu in the August 12 elections!

  10. Someone, please show this to #Bally. During the launch of UPND’s manifesto, he claimed that the country is suffering under President Lungu’s government.

  11. Zambia is continuously reaching incredible growth! President Edgar Lungu has the capability to take Zambia to the top of the international market.

  12. Many leaders came before Mr. Lungu. But nobody was able to bring development to the nation. Only President Lungu and his government managed to do it! We are truly on a path of development! Feeling blessed!!!

  13. Those days are gone when the people in rural areas used to walk for miles to get water. Now, there is sufficient clean drinking water connection at each and every house. #LongLivePresidentLungu
