Itezhi-Tezhi Itezhi-Tezhi is a small town in the south west section of the Southern Province of Zambia. It is the seat of the Itezhi-Tezhi District.It lies west of the town of Namwala on the border of the Kafue National Park. On the 6th of February, 2012, President Michael Sata issued a directive to try and move Itezhi-Tezhi from Southern Province to Central Province which was rejected by the people of Southern Province.
Itezhi-Tezhi Itezhi-Tezhi came into existence when the Itezhi-Tezhi Dam was constructed on the Kafue River in the early 1970s. The dam was created to hold and regulate the water flow in the river for Kafue Gorge Upper Power Station, downstream.
Itezhi-Tezhi The town's estimated population is 4,000. The largest employer in the town is the electricity company ZESCO.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam The Itezhi-Tezhi Dam on the Kafue River in west-central Zambia was built between 1974 and 1977 at the Itezhi-Tezhi Gap, in a range of hills through which the river had eroded a narrow valley, leading to the broad expanse of the wetlands known as the Kafue Flats. The town of Itezhi-Tezhi rests to the north side of the dam.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam The Kafue Flats ecosystem has evolved in response to the conditions of the dam's influence; to regular extremes of flooding and drying out. The floods charge the soil with water. Fish, and animals adapt to swim or wade, help spread nutrients, and when the waters recede, grasses grow rapidly and sustain herbivores such as buffalo, lechwe, and cattle. The natural seasonal cycle has maintained plants, fish, and animals, as they have adapted to the March–April inundation in their nutrition and breeding. Many of the local residents move their settlements annually to cope with the regular cycle of flooding.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam The 2003/4 rainy season saw particularly high rainfall in Zambia. The effect of the Itezhi-Tezhi Dam release during this season is shown in the above NASA photos. According to a NASA website, in June 2004 an agreement was made with the hydroelectricity company to restore water releases from the dams according to a more natural flooding regime, prsumably by keeping to the original intention of a 300 m³/s flood for the whole of March.
Itezhi-Tezhi District Itezhi-Tezhi District is a district of Zambia, located in Southern Province. The capital lies at Itezhi-Tezhi. As of the 2000 Zambian Census, the district had a population of 43111 people.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam The initial purpose of the dam is to store water for the Kafue Gorge Upper Power Station more than downstream. The Kafue River, like most in south-central Africa, has a very high seasonal variation, flooding in the rainy season and slowing to perhaps a twentieth of the peak flow rate at the end of the dry season. Power generation however requires a steady flow, which can only be achieved by having a reservoir large enough to store the rainy season flood for use in the dry season. At the Kafue Gorge the topography does not allow a large enough reservoir to form. The designers of the dam therefore had the idea of siting the main reservoir at Itezhi-Tezhi, and releasing the water in a steady flow down the river along the Kafue Flats to the Kafue Gorge Dam.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam In 2014, The African Development Bank (AfDB), the Dutch Development Bank FMO, the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) and Propaco of France provided the Zambian Government with a loan of $142 million to fund approximately half of the project cost. The power station was fully commissioned in February 2016.
Itezhi-Tezhi Dam The Itezhi-Tezhi Dam has impacted the local ecology of the Kafue Flats in the following ways:
