Back dam

Vergenoegen backdam smallThis is a dam deep in the Vergenoegen backdams which exits an area known as ‘Savannah’ which is where Two Brothers Corporation has hundreds, possibly thousands, of acres of rice land under cultivation. These dams are used by farmers to move their paddy harvest from the fields to the rice mills. This particular dam leads to the conservancy aback Vergenoegen. In the dry season they are baked hard but as they are essentially mud dams, in the rainy season they can become quite muddy and slushy and consequently dangerous. A few days ago a resident of neighbouring Philadelphia known as Pucky (son of popular rice farmer known as Boyo) died after his tractor slid overboard in an area not too far from that which is photographed above. And this was in the dry season.
