Explore More About Mohale Dam of Lesotho:

The Mohale Dam was awarded the 2005 Fulton Awards by the Concrete Society of South Africa as having the "Best Construction Engineering Project and Best Construction Technique."

Mohale Dam is categorized as a high dam, and at 145 meters (476 ft) in height, it is said to be the highest rock-fill concrete-face dam (CFRD) in Africa. It is built as an embankment dam with a rock-fill concrete face on the upstream side. The volumetric content of the dam structure is 7.5 million m³.

The dam has a length of 700 meters (2,300 ft) with a 12 meters (39 ft) wide crest. The spillway, located on the left bank of the dam, is not gated and flood is routed over the crest of the ogee-shaped spillway through a concrete-lined chute with a flip bucket and a stilling basin at its terminus.
