The project involves the construction of Kunzwi-Musami Dams, conveyancing and treatment works. The dam site is 67 kilometres north east of the capital, near Juru Growth Point on the Nyanguvi River. The dam will have the capacity to deliver 158.4million cubic meters of water daily. The estimated project cost is US$865 million and will be funded through Public Private Partnership initiatives. Project implementation is estimated at 60 months. In addition to supplying water to Harare and its catchment areas the dam project will provide irrigation water to surrounding communities. Furthermore, the city will save on treatment costs as the project is more upstream than Lake Chivero which is downstream and heavily contaminated with effluent from industries.
