Dams and Sand dams
During the rainy season, sediment is transported and there rises a need to build impermeable barriers on the river to increase the depth of sand to retain more water. Thus Dabane Water Workshops has been constructing sand dams in Matabeleland North and South in order to retain more water in the sand to be used in dry seasons.
