Lake Kariba Weekly Levels in Meters

The Kariba Lake is designed to operate between levels 475.50m and 488.50m (with 0.70m freeboard) for hydropower generation. The Lake level continued receding due to lower inflows than turbined outflows, dropping by 7cm during the week under review before closing the week at 480.04m (equivalent to 32% usable storage) on 20th May 2019.  Last year on the same date, the Lake level was 485.73m
