Bloemhof Dam Information

The Bloemhof Dam is situated on the Vaal River, downstream of Vaal Dam approximately 2km upstream of the town of Bloemhof. The Bloemhof Dam was originally known as the Oppermansdrif Dam, and was build during the sixties and commissioned in 1970. The Bloemhof Dam is a composite dam comprising earthfill flanks on each side of a very long 305m long central concrete spillway. Due to the flat topography of the Bloemhof area, the Bloemhof dam wall is very long with a total crest length of 4 270m and a maximum wall height of only 35.2m above deepest foundation level.


When full, the capacity of Bloemhof Dam is 1 269 million m3 with a total surface area of 223 square kilometers. Bloemhof Dam is therefore a very large and shallow reservoir in an area with relatively low rainfall ( 474mm/a ) and high potential evaporation ( ~1800mm/a ).


Bloemhof Dam was build to collect runoff from below the Vaal Dam to supply water to users in the Lower Vaal River region. The Bloemhof Dam supplies water to various industrial and municipal areas, but most of the water released from the Bloemhof Dam is used for riparian irrigation along the Vaal River. A total 17 000ha is irrigated with water from the Bloemhof Dam. Water is also released from Bloemhof Dam to suppliment water supply to the Vaalharts Government Water Scheme where approximately 37 000ha of farm land are under irrigation. The Vaalharts scheme is presently the largest user of water from Bloemhof Dam and the water released from Bloemhof Dam is diverted from the Vaalharts Weir via a canal system to the irrigation scheme in the Vaalharts River catchment - a tributary of the Vaal River.
