RDJ Briefing



From the figure above, it is evident that the country's water sources are currently low in comparison to last season's quanities, with the exception of the Goreangab, Hardap and Olushandja Dam which are close to or slightly higher than last seasons levels. The overall reduction in dam water levels is largely due to the lowered rainfall received this season. With regards to these observatio­ns, it is also important to note the following: Omatjenne Dam does not have abstractio­n facilities. The dam contents are according to the latest dam basin surveys. The inflow that is reflected in the bulletin does not take into account evaporatio­n and abstractio­n of water. Transfer from Omatako Dam to Von Bach Dam took place. The Otjivero Silt water level is for 20/01/2022.
