Molatedi Dam: The dam supplies other consumers in South Africa and Botswana gets 7.3 million cubic metres per year, but the figure is reduced to half when the dam is below 26% which is equivalent to 11Ml/day. It should be noted that this amount is insignificant considering the demand of the greater Gaborone area (it amounts to only 8% at half allocate.
