Challenge

The Stoneridge Dam's spillway have been drown by heavy rains in the 2017 -2018 leaving the Dam with no water as it moved down stream .The situation left the dam with very little water to sustain the residence to build their houses ,their wells without water as the water level were reduced drastically. The children come to swim in the little water left thereby creating a disease infectious area targeting children and the spread of water borne diseases like bilhazia and typhoid .

Solution

The project would make water available in the dam as the spillway shall prevent water to move down stream , protect the death of the dam through the erection of the spillway .The available water in the dam would make residence build their house . The dam would provide a habitat for different species in the dam like snails ,fish ,frogs and an attractive heritage as tourists in the area would come and view the dam on the centre of the suburb.

Long-Term Impact

The Dam provides a long standing water resource for members in the community ,an ecosystem harbour where all species breeds and spread to other areas. It provides a tourist attraction for members of the community and surrounding dwellers. It also provides business for fisherman who would come and fish for selling purposes thus improving their diet and some would do it for entertainment .Young people would make it as a resting place and rather than involved in drug abuse.
