Research to determine the effectiveness of various types of economically feasible by-wash spillways for small farm dams in Australia has proved very successful. Full-scale models were used to good effect and the results are considered to be applicable to South African conditions in the construction of sin all earth dams. The use of grass cover to protect spillways is suitable for most purposes and formulae and graphs are presented to assist in design.
