Spelga Dam

Spelga Dam is a reservoir in the Mourne Mountains. It was constructed 1953-1957 and supplies water to parts of Counties Armagh and Down. Together with nearby Fofanny Reservoir, it can supply 6,500,000 gallons of water per day and discharges 500,000 gallons a day back into the River Bann.
