MONDAY, May 21, 2018… The level of water in Kenya’s largest hydro power generating dam Masinga located in the Seven Forks Cascade has risen to 1057.41 meters above sea level (m a.s.l.) as of this morning with a crest of 0.9 meters flowing into the spillway. This is a rise from 1057.03m a.s.l. recorded on Friday 18 May.
However, the amount of water flowing into the dam has reduced from 585m3 per second on Friday down to 333m3 this morning. This is as a result of reduced rainfall in the catchment area.
