The federal government of Ethiopia, through the regional government of Amhara, has been involved in the development of various water projects both for drinking and irrigation purposes to ensure water security in the country.

However, many of the towns and cities within the Amhara region still experience water shortages. The Alliance, along with a professional team on dam construction from Mekelle University, visited the site to study options and provide suggestions.

Organized by Wollo University, Mekdela Amba University, and the Mekaneselam town administration, a technical team led by the Alliance and experts from Mekelle University conducted this reconnaissance survey in June The team presented findings and recommendations to the council of delegates from the preliminary studies showing:.

Following an assessment of the hydrology of the catchment and the overall surface water resources available and the availability of construction materials, the team identified an appropriate site for a water supply dam that met the required technical qualities adequate runoff, a good foundation, suitable spillway site, stable abutments, and suitable and sufficient construction material for dam, appurtenant structures and infrastructures.

Wuletawu Abera, landscape hydrologist at the Alliance. In addition, the team also evaluated and documented other issues which would require due attention before and after the construction of the dam. Following the positive results from the study, the team identified a suitable site for the dam and advised the regional government on how to proceed. The regional government of Amhara received the report and assigned USD 1 million for a detailed feasibility study of the sites identified by the Alliance team.

After conducting detailed site investigation, ADSWE approved the location proposed by the Alliance team and gave a green light for the construction of the dam.
