Water Harvesting Dam: Muwas

Muwas is a small hamlet that falls under the Sabilpur panchayat and is located deep inside the scrub forest in the foothills of Morni. The village can be accessed by driving along the dry rocky bed of the nadi that flows between Aasrewali and Belwali villages. A large earthen dam has been built across a choe to create a reservoir in the foothills. The village is located atop a small hillock at some distance from the dam and the dam does not appear to cater to the immediate water needs of the locals. It has, however, created an impressive water body that would definitely be frequented by the wildlife in the area.
