All three (3) major rivers consisting of Sg Tuaran, Sg. Moyog and Sg. Papar which supply water to Kota Kinabalu and the surrounding districts of Tuaran, Penampang and Papar are now fully utilised. Therefore to ensure adequate supply, water needs to be stored in reservoirs or lakes such as the one created at Babagon dam. The water stored in Babagon dam is crucial in maintaining water supply throughout the year and especially during the dry seasons.
No, the dam does not have any operational outlet valve to release water into the river. Water is only release to the Moyog treatment plant via a pipeline and eventually to consumers.
When the dam becomes full during the rainy season, excess water will overflow at the spillway into the river. This is the natural amount of water flowing from the Babagon catchment into the river. The dam does not add to this amount.
There are three sirens which are located at the dam, at the Sekolah Rendah kebangsaan Tampasak and at the Jalan Tambunan road junction. When the dam is about to overflow the sirens will automatically be triggered warning people to stay clear from the river. This warning is clearly shown on signboards placed at various locations along the river adjacent to the dam.
The spillway of the Babagon Dam has been designed to discharge the probable maximum flood inflow (PMF) of 2560 cubic meters per second. Such a flood has a probability of the order of 1 in 10,000 years. The spill tail canal can safely discharge a 1 in 1000 years flood which is 810 cubic metres per second. Even the PMF will not endanger the dam although it may overflow the banks of the spill way canal.
Sabah has had earthquakes of intensities on the Richter scale of 5.7 at Kudat and 7.0 at Ranau. On this basis, it has been deduced that if an earthquake were to occur in Kota Kinabalu, its intensity should not exceed 5.5 on the Richter scale. The embankment dam and the intake tower have been designed to withstand an earthquake of such an intensity.
The life of rockfill embankments such as Babagon dam is indefinite (ie it lasts forever) so long as maintenance and inspection are carried out regularly. Babagon Dam is subjected to a safety review by dam experts every five years and is monitored continuously by telemetry with daily inspections carried out by operational personnel.
The design of Babagon Dam have followed guidelines by the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) and Australia National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) as well as complying with relevant International and Australian Codes and Standards.
