The alluvium in the present stream channels consists of coarse grained sand, generally with a groundwater table within a couple of metres depth. These shallow aquifers are widespread in the dryer parts of Zimbabwe, as well as other countries in the region.

An investigation of flows and losses within the alluvial

2005-11-25 · The rainfall of Zimbabwe varies between about 300 mm in the lowveld and over 1200 mm in the northeast highlands and generally falls only between November/December and February/March. However, it is highly erratic and precipitation frequently comprises a considerable number of negligible amounts of rainfall balanced by a few large falls, with intensities of over 100 mm/h.

Potential water supply of a small reservoir and alluvial

2008-1-1 · However, when an ephemeral river is underlain by a larger alluvial aquifer, a sand storage dam is an efficient way of storing water in the semi-arid regions of southern Zimbabwe. An alluvial aquifer twice as large as the Mnyabezi catchment, could store between 1000 m 3 and 1500 m 3 water (depending on the seepage losses) for the whole year. Assuming the same domestic water use as in the Mnyabezi catchment,

Potential water supply of a small reservoir and alluvial

These measures are heightening the spillway of the ‘Mnyabezi 27’ dam and constructing a sand storage dam in the alluvial aquifer of the Mnyabezi River. The upper-Mnyabezi catchment covers approximately 22 km 2 and is a tributary of the Thuli River in southern Zimbabwe. Three coupled models are used to simulate the hydrological processes in the Mnyabezi catchment.

The hydrology of sand rivers in Zimbabwe and the use

Sand rivers are ephemeral watercourses containing sand that are occasionally flooded with rainwater runoff during the rainy season. Although the riverbed appears dry for most of the year, there is perennial groundwater flow within the sand. This water flowing beneath the surface is a valuable resource for local communities; nonetheless our understanding of such river systems is limited.
