Vanderkloof is named after the original farm on which the dam was constructed. The former name of the Dam, P.K. Le Roux Dam was named after the former Minister of Water Affairs who for many years campaigned for the development of the Orange River. Recently the name Vanderkloof was decided on for both the dam and the town to avoid confusion. The Orange River Project was the larges engineering and water conservation project ever attempted in South Africa. This combined storage and diversion dam also incorporates the Vanderkloof hydro-electric power station which is connected to Escom's national distribution network.The dam was officially opened on the 17 November 1977 by the former Prime Minister, Mr. B.J. Voster.
