Short summary
Soil erosion result in the deposition of sediments into rivers and reservoirs. The sediments affect the water quality resulting in the treatment of the water being expensive. The sediments that are carried into the reservoir reduces the capacity of the dam. The reduction of water quality in Chimhanda dam as well as the increase in the cost of treatment of the water pushed the author to do a research.
