Q: Is a reservoir much greater than in the river and the biological systems have a much greater opportunity to utilise the available nutrients? ¶
Q: Is a reservoir as are expressed in square kilometres? ¶
A: Yes, in the United States acres are commonly used.
Q: Is a reservoir relatively large and no prior clearing of forest in the flooded area was undertaken? ¶
A: Yes, and greenhouse gas emissions from the reservoir could be higher than those of a conventional oil-fired thermal generation plant.
Q: Are reservoirs used to provide the raw water feed to a water treatment plant which delivers drinking water through water mains? ¶
Q: Are reservoirs usually formed partly by excavation and partly by building a complete encircling bund or embankment? ¶
A: Yes, and which may exceed 6 km in circumference.
Q: Is a reservoir filled with water using high-performance electric pumps at times when electricity demand is low? ¶
A: Yes, and then uses this stored water to generate electricity by releasing the stored water into a low-level reservoir when electricity demand is high.
Q: Are reservoirs constructed across the river line? ¶
A: Yes, and with the onward flow controlled by an orifice plate.
Q: Is a reservoir empty again? ¶
Q: Were reservoirs also built by various ancient kingdoms in Bengal? ¶
A: Yes, and Assam and Cambodia.
Q: Is a reservoir usually divided into distinguishable areas? ¶
Q: Are reservoirs constructed as water towers? ¶
A: Yes, and often as elevated structures on concrete pillars where the landscape is relatively flat.
Q: Are reservoirs often constructed by enlarging existing lakes? ¶
Q: Were reservoirs created by ancient Sinhalese kings in order to save the water for irrigation? ¶
Q: Are reservoirs closely regulated to try to prevent or minimise failures of containment? ¶
