Soon new Dam in kzn - Ernst - 09-21-2012

The 1.5 million cubic metre dam is now full to capacity.

The Mahlabatshane Dam Project, which was officially launched by Ugu’s deputy mayor, Mondli Chiliza in March 2012

This could be the dragon dam of the lower south coast and in 5 to 10 years we could have a awesome new dam to fish.

New bass waters, good news.

Do you have any coordinated Ernst. Looked on Google earth but can't seem to find it.

I have looked inland from Umzumbe in the Ugu district.

Ernst, it is much more inland than you think:

Dam wall:
30 24' 53.12"S or your GPS 30 24 885
30 10' 49.32"E or your GPS 30 10 822

41km NW of Hibberdene as the crow flies.

Thanks Riprap

Are you sure on the size? 1.5 mil cubes, not that big?

- Riprap - 09-25-2012

As far as I've ascertained, the volume is more like 2.55mil m3 which is still not that big for a storage dam of that importance?

Hey Ernst
Keep an eye out for Ludeke Dam (Nearly Complete) in the transkei not too far from you :blue-biggrin:

- Riprap - 09-25-2012

Coyote, thanks for the info. It's funny how some sites link this new dam to 60km NW of Port Alfred down in the old Ciskei - talk about know your country hey!! Haaibo......
