    What are the requirements for construction a small dam in the rural areas?

      One needs to approach the relevant subcatchment council and get a permit to construct such a dam

    Good Day

    I have a 58 hectare farm in Chitomborwizi (Chinhoyi) and would like to draw water from Biri Dam. I wish to conduct a professional feasibility study for this project. Is ZINWA able to assist or can you recommend someone??

    Regards

    I have a stream running through my 27 hectares plot. Can l build a dam wall to make a water reservoir?
    Is there any need to dig to make it deeper?

      Good evening Joslin. It is legally permissible to do so but you first need to get approval from your subcatchment council

    Hi, I hope I find you well.

    I would like to inquire about our community dam rehabilitation. This includes the dam wall rehabilitation approximately 2km long and digging out siltation that’s happened over the years. We need this work carried out before this year’s rains. Can Zinwa carry out repairs and what is the procedure.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Thank you.

    We have an old (62 years) dam which is heavily silted so much that it does not hold water anymore.
    It is Triangular in shape…..with base/wall at 120m long and the length/ basin at 200m…..originally the deepest part was 2m dam wall height at 2+m as well. Dam started silting 25 years ago.
    Now, how much does Zinwa charge to scoop and restore roughly this type of a dam….there are no rocks or vegitation to clear but the heavy that will require heavy machinery…
    Private contractors are asking unaffordable rates to reconstruct.
