Description [ correction ]

Zaaihoek Dam east of Volksrust in the Slang River, KZN Province of South Africa, has a capacity of 185 million cubic metres. Both the Wakkerstroom River and Slang River (tributary of the Buffalo River). feed the Zaaihoek Dam which was built in 1988. The dam is used to transfer water to the Vaal system and the Majuba Power Station. It can also augment downstream demands by releasing water into the Slang River from where it is pumped into the Amersfoort dam. Surplus water from there is transferred to the Vaal Catchment area and the Grootdraai Dam. The water is of high quality and Trout, Barbel and Carp may be caught there.
