Sand Dams

Sand Dams to help water retention

Our first morning back face to face.

We shall be pleased to welcome Rotarian Alok who will be speaking about Sand Dams - one of our International Projects for this year.

Year-round safe water

A sand dam is a reinforced stone masonry wall built across a seasonal sandy river. They have almost no maintenance costs and can last for upwards of 60 years (the oldest known in operation being over 100 years old).

Water behind a sand dam raises the water table in the surrounding area which improves the soil, creating better conditions for crops and grazing. More trees can be planted which ensures that more water infiltrates the ground and less soil is washed away – creating a virtuous cycle of soil and water conservation.
