Craigie Burn Dam is an arch/earth-fill type dam located on the Mnyamvubu River, near Greytown, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It was established in 1963 and its primary purpose is for irrigation usage. Recent assessments however, assign a significant hazard potential to the dam/reservoir which in turn makes the intended use questionable.
