Description

Construction of the Shongweni dam was started in 1923 and completed in 1927 with the wall being hailed as an engineering phenomenon. The Hydroplus fuse gate system was added later. The fuse gate ensures the dam’s stability and the discharge capacity. The project was awarded the South African Institution of Engineers Award for Technical Excellence in 1995.
The original water works located below the wall has been proclaimed as a national monument.
