Nyumba ya Mungu Dam is a Tanzanian hydroelectric dam located in the Mwanga District of the Kilimanjaro Region. It was built in the late 1960s and is the largest man-made water body in the Kilimanjaro region. Nyumba ya Mungu Reservoir. Nyumba ya Mungu means "House of God" and has an installed capacity of 8 megawatts (11,000 hp).
Nyumba ya Mungu is an artificial lake located in the Kilimanjaro region. The reservoir is located in the Pangani River valley of the Masai steppe, about 50 km south of Moshi. It is fed by two major tributaries, the Kikuletwa and Ruvu rivers, which drain about 7,500 square kilometers (2,900 square miles) of watershed consisting of wooded grasslands, forests, true deserts and alpine deserts.
It was built for irrigation, hydroelectric power, and to start a local fishing industry. The reservoir was completed in December 1965, but the irrigation project had not yet been developed. The plan called for the construction of a dam that would have been used to store flood flows, allowing for the development of some 30,000 acres of irrigated agriculture and the generation of electric power.
In 1970, the lake had a thriving tilapia fishery. However, this did not last long and subsequent reports in 1972 and 1973 showed a significant decline in fishery products.
