Diepkloof dam is an earthfill embankment dam with no construction or design records built up by compacting successive layers of earth, using the most impervious materials to form an embankment on the upstream and downstream sides supported by a spillway outlet at the left abutment which is made up of an unlined eroded channel. This channel is no more than 4 m wide and has rubble and precast concrete pipes placed in the channel to create a makeshift pedestrian bridge (Refer to Figure 1) with its outlet located close to existing services (a sewer line).
