Hi Gents

The water Research Commission has recently publicshed a book on South Africa's large dams and it is really interesting.  If you google the commission you can phone them and order it for R150-00 which is a very low price for a coffee table book.

Cheers
Whakhead.

Not quite the damwall but the dam itself. Top 2 photos taken in June and bottom 2 in September of a little dam on the mountain here. 1 and 3 is sort of same angle/view. Well we had plenty rain would a fair equation
