What are Sand Dams?
Sand Dams are the most cost-effective form of rainwater harvesting and provide communities with a clean, local and reliable source of water – even during periods of drought.
Sand Dams store up to 40 million litres of water and provide a year-round supply for up to 1,000 people – with virtually zero operation and maintenance costs. Sand Dams store water under sand, protecting it from contamination, evaporation and parasites – cleaner water that lasts longer.
Sand Dams save people up to 12 hours a day because they provide water to families an average of only 30 minutes from home. Communities are then able to invest this time in protecting their land from erosion and investing in climate smart agriculture.
