Water Harvesting Dams:

While most of the dams built in the kandi area of Morni foothills to harvest water and create reservoirs are earthen dams yet in Bharal, a huge masonry wall has been built across a seasonal choe. The wall has been repeatedly breached and repaired. A breach in the upper portion of the wall is currently allowing the water to escape, creating a small waterfall as it falls to the original bed of the choe. The entire network of irrigation pipes have been rendered redundant with no water to feed the system. The dam is an obvious engineering disaster and has failed to serve any purpose whatsoever. The locals complain that it has only blocked the access of the village cattle to the meadow that lies upstream of the dam.
