Lake Mutirikwi On Verge Of Spilling

Lake Mutirikwi On Verge Of Spilling

The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA), has advised that Lake Mutirikwi is on the verge of spilling.

In a statement, ZINWA warned people living downstream of the lake not to cross flooded rivers and to ensure that water pumps and pipes along river channels are removed or properly secured.

Lake Mutirikwi, which is the second-largest inland water body in the country, is currently 98.9 per cent full and is likely to spill in the next 48-72 hours.

The lake last reached full capacity in January 2005 and last season it reached 98 per cent. ZINWA said:

We wish to advise stakeholders and communities downstream of Lake Mutirikwi that due to the rains received upstream of the lake in the past few days, the lake is expected to start spilling in the next 48 to 72 hours should the current flow continue.

ZINWA working with the Masvingo Provincial Civil Protection Unit and other structures on the ground has placed communities on high alert and continues to create the necessary awareness to mitigate the impact of the anticipated spilling.
