Photographer's Note

The dam of Loumbila is located at about 15 km north-east of Ouagadougou, the capital of the Burkina-Faso, before the little town of Ziniaré (where the president Blaise Compaoré bore and where he has a palace).
Built in 1947, the dam is 42 millions of m3 of capacity.
Its waters go to the dam n°3 in the centre of Ouagadougou before being treated at the Raspanga station. Then they can be supplied.

A lot of market gardeners work the dam banks and the little ditches around ; some fish on the lake too.
