Nile Dam successful Filled

Dr Eng Seleshi Bekele, announced today the GERD reservoir reached overtopping water level. Currently, the incoming flow passes through both bottom outlets and overtopping. This year also we are experiencing extreme rainfall in the Abbay Basin(Blue Nile Basin). As a result, the GERD reservoir has filled rapidly. The next milestone for GERD construction is to enable the early generation to take place in the next few months.
