Last year, the height for that part of the dam was 575 meters when Ethiopia completed the second filling of the dam. Filling the dam has been planned to take place in the rainy months of June, July and August. Due to the heavy rain Ethiopia received this year, the third filling is completed early – without affecting the water shares of lower riparian countries. There are views that floor problems that Sudan experienced this year could have been worse had it not been for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. Ethiopian President Sahle Work Zewde said the dam is the image of the winning Ethiopia.
