    Siltation. Ethiopia's rivers carry a high silt content, due to heavy erosion which is accelerated by deforestation and inappropriate agricultural practices on steep mountain slopes. The reservoir of one of Ethiopia's oldest large dams, the Awash dam commissioned in , is close to reaching the end of its useful life due to siltation. The reservoir survey, which is the first of its kind in Ethiopia, also indicates that specific sediment yield (SSY) varies significantly between catchments: i.e. from to t km −2 y −1 with an average of (± ) t km −2 y −1. The high spatial variability is mainly associated with differences in Cited by:

    Additionally, no siltation takes place in the reservoir and the potential disaster like collapse of dams can be avoided. Sitharam has recently advocated building coastal reservoirs as well. According to him, storing floodwater during rainy season with the help of coastal reservoirs is the Missing: Ethiopia.   Imagine a reservoir the size of the Hemavati dam in Hassan district completely filled with sand and mud and unable to retain water. With silt accumulating in the State’s 11 major reservoirs Missing: Ethiopia.

The silting of dam reservoirs is the most challenging problem in Ethiopia. Sedimentation adversely affects the reservoir capacity. The loss of storage capacity is particularly felt in connection with energy production, water supply for domestic use, industry and agriculture, and in flood : $   Reservoir siltation in the semi‐arid highlands of northern Ethiopia: sediment yield–catchment area relationship and a semi‐quantitative approach for predicting sediment yield.

Tamene. Corresponding Author. E-mail address: [email protected]‐ by: Siltation is the main threat of water harvesting schemes and hydro-electric power dams in Ethiopia and needs to be prevented rather than corrected.

This study is a first attempt in the drylands of northern Ethiopia to elucidate the source areas of sediments within a catchment and the factors controlling the instability of these soils.

Reservoir sedimentation is a worldwide problem hampering the sustainable use of reservoirs and the sediment balance of impacted rivers. Various techniques are applied for sediment mitigation.

Moreover, the availability of water for irrigation from the reservoir leads to more intensive land use and increased soil erosion. Siltation, or sans, is water pollution caused by particulate terrestrial clastic material, with a particle size dominated by silt or refers both to the increased concentration of suspended sediments and to the increased accumulation (temporary or permanent) of fine Missing: Ethiopia.

Abstract. Sediment yield (SY) is the total mass of sediment that leaves a catchment per unit of time. It is the combined result of several erosion processes (e.g. sheet and rill erosion, gully erosion, riverbank erosion, landslides) and sediment deposition (e.g.

In this regard, the Baderitz Reservoir suffers from deleterious sediment inputs and resulting siltation processes. In order to estimate the reservoir lifespan, the event-based soil erosion and deposition model EROSION 3D was applied.

Simulations of sediment input and sediment deposition processes Author: Marcus Schindewolf, Constanze Bornkampf, Michael von Werner, Jürgen Schmidt. Soil erosion in Ethiopian highlands has caused land deterioration due to moving nutrient-rich top soil to downstream reservoirs while leaving reservoirs dysfunctional due to sedimentation.

Micro-watershed management by removing reservoir sediments and using them for reclaiming farmland, while using reservoir water for irrigation, can be a potential solution to simultaneously address soil and Cited by: 1.

Abstract. Siltation of 26 large and small dams, spatially distributed in the Souss–Massa basin, has been investigated. The disparity observed in the reservoir’s silting reflects the variability of each watershed’s physical parameters that control the water by: 1.
