The future dam on the Movene River, a tributary of the Umbelúzi river, may not only supply Maputo but also to the Beluluane industrial park and to Matola-Gare, the director general of the Southern Regional Water Administration (ARA-Sul), Belarmino Chivambo said.
Chivambo also said that the Beluluane industrial park will receive its water through a water duct that starts at Movene.
During a visit to the future location of the dam, which has a capacity of 50 million cubic metres, Chivambo also said that construction would make it possible to solve Maputo’s water supply problems as the Pequenos Libombos dam will not be able to provide enough water in the medium to long term.
The Movene dam, which will be built in the Namaacha district of Maputo province, may also produce electricity, Chivambo said. (macauhub)
