The team of expert has just completed the site to verify its design at site.
The proposed dam on Jiri River includes 38m high concrete dam gravity dam with crest length of 88.5m where top of crest is at 1834 masl which store 1,014,669.41 m3 water and creates surface area of 123,685.53 m2 along the length of 2.1 km upstream of the proposed dam. The another major component of the dam includes 5 nos. of gated (5mx6.5m each) spillways with 50 m long stilling basin to safely pass the design flood of 412.86 m3/s corresponding to 1 in 10,000 flood. The catchment area at the proposed dam location is 22.2 sq. km. where the average annual discharge is estimated 1.31 m3/s.
