Lake Chivero Left With 18 Months Water Supply

Harare’s main water supply dam, Lake Chivero, is now left with water to last only 18 months largely due to siltation, droughts and algae, which has also affected water quality.

Harare city officials say water levels have gone down by as much as three metres, while the depth of the lake has been reduced by about 8,0 metres due to siltation. Speaking during a tour of the lake with members of  civic society organisations and the media, Harare City Council acting director for water Engineer Mabhena Moyo said the city was now looking at increasing supplies with water from Lake Manyame.
