  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper discussed Australian research on the effectiveness of various types of economically feasible by-wash spillways for small farm dams. The results were considered to be applicable to South African conditions in the construction of small dams. The use of grass cover to protect spillways should be suitable for Iost purposes.
