Mtomba village, Zhishavana
Water Capacity (m³)
The Mtomba dam serves 10
villages and its enlarging will make sure those villages have access to water for a long period extending
deep into summer time. Availability of water until the next rain season will make sure the forestry and horticulture practitioners in this area gets enough water to water their plots and gardens.
Still to Raise
Mazvihwa is one of the most arid areas in South Central Zimbabwe. The area has all typical characters of a marginalized community. The area receives very scanty and unpredictable rainfall averaging 400m3 annually. Dam enlarging will increase the water holding capacity of dams; extend the duration in which people and livestock can access water.
