The Katse Dam, a concrete arch dam on the Malibamat'so River in Lesotho, is Africa's second largest double-curvature arch dam. The dam is part of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project, which will eventually include five large dams in
remote rural areas. The dam is just below the confluence of the Bokong River, which forms the western arm of the Katse reservoir. The potential of the project was identified by the South African civil engineer Ninham Shand (now Zutari) as a possible means to supplement the water supply to South Africa. The World Bank arranged a treaty between the governments of South Africa and Lesotho, allowing the project to proceed.
