Bulawayo Dams 60% Full, Can Last 30 Months Only

According to the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa) statistics on dam levels, Bulawayo’s six supply dams were at an average of 60 percent full as at December 24, down from 65 percent recorded on November 6.

The water is enough to last the city 30 months. Thee report reads:

The monthly average drawdown calculated using the period 2012-2014 when there were no inflows was about 8 million m3 per month. Using this figure for drawdown and usable storage of 244 million m3, the expected theoretical depletion period translates to 30,9 months.
