Dahla Dam

Project Description

Dahla Dam, constructed in 1952, is the primary source of irrigation for Kandahar province. To improve operational reliability and safety at the dam, this critical infrastructure project calls for the repair and replacement of water-control features to reduce water loss due to leakage, and rehabilitating the existing intake structure and replacing its components. The performance period is two years.


It is hoped this project will reassure the Afghan people of the goodwill and continued support of the United States as U.S. forces transition regional security over to the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
