Kariba Dam: Water levels at lowest level due to climate change

Water in the main power generating plant-Kariba Dam has dropped to its lowest level, spurred by climate change. This means that both Zambia and Zimbabwe are under threat problems with their hydro power generation.

According to Zambia’s power utility Kariba North Bank station director Wesley Lwiindi, water in the Kariba dam has slumped to its lowest levels since 1995. The current water levels are a threat to the future of the turbines. The climate change effects are forcing water levels closer to reaching the 1995/96 season, the lowest recorded since the 128-meter (420 feet) high dam was completed in 1959.
