Abstract

To the engineer, the body of water in a reservoir may appear simply to be a stored supply of water that must be collected and redistributed as and when necessary. For many purposes this macroscale view of water is sufficient: it enables the engineer to plan the distribution networks, dams, water treatment works and so on that are necessary for the efficient management of a water resource, so as to meet domestic and industrial demands.
