Situated in a pictorial environment, Vaitarna Dam in the Vaitarna River offers the stunning scenery of the undulating stony peaks of the Western Ghats. Constructed in the early 50’s, this dam site commenced an era of concrete dams in India .A lovely lagoon with a vast extend of black waters, flanked by deep woods, makes this dam site a delight for the tourists.

Besides its panoramic beauty, the importance in the dam is that, it is the chief source of water and electricity to the Mumbaikers. Considering the increasing demand, a new dam is planned to be constructed on the Vaitarna River, which will be commissioned in 2011. This will be the second highest dam in the state and probably put an end to the on growing water scarcity in Mumbai.
