How does a reservoir work?
A reservoir is an artificial lake where water is stored. Most reservoirs are formed by constructing dams across rivers.
A reservoir can also be formed from a natural lake whose outlet has been dammed to control the water level. The dam controls the amount of water that flows out of the reservoir.
Can you drink water from a reservoir?
Never drink water from a natural source that you haven’t purified, even if the water looks clean. Water in a stream, river, or lake may look clean, but it can still be filled with bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can result in waterborne diseases, such as cryptosporidiosis or giardiasis.
Why do we need reservoirs?
A reservoir is an artificial lake created in a river valley by the construction of a dam. The most critical purpose of reservoirs is flood risk management.
Reservoirs collect water during times of high rainfall, reducing flood risk, and then release the water slowly over the following weeks and months.
