Abha Dam lake

The dam was constructed of concrete with a length of 350 meters (35 blocks each with a length of 14 meters). Its height is 33 meters. The maximum storage capacity is 2.13 MCM at the final storage altitude of 2200 meters above sea level with a side spillway of 131 meters. The dam contains a tunnel for monitoring and follow-up along the body of the dam. Water from the reservoir enters the filtration chamber, which is located in front of the dam’s five main blocks. There is a draft tower inside one of these blocks and water is drawn from this tower to the opening chamber of the purification plant that was built on the dam to provide potable water.
