Development of Ecosystem Based Sediment Control Techniques & Design of Siltation Dam to Protect Phewa Lake: Harpan Khola Watershed Kaski Summary Report
PDF File Size: 5.19 MB | Download   
Phewa is a semi-natural freshwater lake in sub-tropical mountain climate lying at an altitude of 784m in Pokhara Valley (280 7’-280 12’N, 840 7’- 840 19’E) that falls on relative subsidence zone in between the Greater Himalaya and the Mahabharata Range. Administratively, Phewa Lake watershed is spread across six Village Development Committee (Sarangkot, Kaskikot, Dhikurpokhari, Bhadaure-Tamagi, Chapakot and Pumdi-Bhumdi) Jurisdictions, fully or partially, as well as the south western part of the Pokhara Sub-Metropolitan City in the mid- western region of Nepal.
The major objective of this study is to propose mitigation measures and design of siltation dam(s) in upstream Phewa Lake, i.e.Harpan Khola valley to trap the sediments flowing from the upper reaches of the hill. The field assessment has given a general picture of the basin - the causes of sedimentation and potential hazard area that has to be mitigated. The northern slope however seems more problematic but the southern slope is also important and needs protection. The streams draining directly into the lake from the southern slope should also be protected.
