The rapid water quality assessment during the year 2018 for selected sampling points was as follows:- Kaleya River at Water valley had pH values above the ZABS upper limit (8.0) for December 2017 and February 2018 sampling campaigns of 8.06 and 8.31 respectively. Kaleya at Flat bridge also had a pH value above the ZABS upper limit (8) for the December sampling campaign of 8.13. While Kaleya at GNRB had a pH value of 8.24 above the ZABS upper limit (8) for March sampling campaign. In March, Kaleya River at the source had a value of 6.34 which was below the allowable limit of 6.5 by ZABS. The rest of the pH values fell within the permissible limits. The highest pH was recorded on Kaleya at... Read More

Potential Evapotranspiration for the Upper Kaleya Sub-Basins ranges from 185.0 mm and 330.4mm for maximum... Read More

Mapped Water Infrastructure

2019-01-02 09:10:49  |  Posted by admin  |  Filed under main content | Read Me

The Upper Kaleya Sub-Catchment has several water infrastructure which include weirs, storage reservoirs, Earth reservoirs. The Reservoirs are mainly used for Irrigation and live stock activities. Much of the water infrastructure based on the rapid water assessment studies conducted show that a number of hydraulic structures exist on the middle sub-basin (Avillion Weir Sub-Basin) of the Upper Kaleya Sub-Catchment. According to the water infrastructure mapping field activity, total of 42 water infrastructure were identified and mapped and Bathymetric surveys between during the month of December, 2018 by WARMA Team. Attached are also some of the research findings of the bathymetric survey... Read More

The Kaleya Sub-Catchment

The Kaleya Sub-Catchment lies within the lower Kafue Catchment of Zambia; the extent of the sub-catchment is such that it covers two administrative district boundaries of Mazabuka and Chikankata in the Southern Province of Zambia. The total Sub-Catchment area is approximately 872.692Km2 while the main river length is 89.122Km. The Kaleya sub-catchment in hydrological terms can be attributed into two main sub-basin blocks; the upper and the lower sub-basin. The Average Annual Precipitation for the period of 29 year in the Kaleya 750mm.
