As the dry season was taking hold the available capacity of the Village of Vesulogo dam was being questioned. Village elders decided that the dam wall needed to be raised to increase storage capacity through the dry season. The elders asked Kokoda Memorial Foundation for assistance.

The new raised dam is now able to store additional water for the dry season.
