Suitability of dam sites in Mauritius
Sites where dams/reservoirs have been proposed in Mauritius are listed in Table 1. In many of these places, detailed investigations have been carried out, only to be shelved for some reason or other. Other dams have been constructed, sometimes after a sketchy desk study investigation, simply because of the urgency of water supply or because of lack of appropriate expertise. It is proposed here to look at a few dams (proposed or built), notably because of findings during investigations or during performance afterwards.
