Middle Vaitarna Dam is a dam in Maharashtra, India.[1][2] The third tallest dam in the state stands at 84 m height made of roller compacted concrete.[3]

It was built on the Vaitarna river in Thane's Kochale village in 2012. The dam stands at a height of 102 metres to impound 455 million litres of water vital for Mumbai's growing water demand.[4] The city receives only 3400 million litres per day (Mld) compared to the 4000 Mld of demand. The water is expected to be transported to Bhandup treatment plant with a 40 km pipeline and delivered to the city.
