Types of food ponds. The type of water supply is one of the main indicators characterizing the features of the design and functioning of the reservoir. Four main types of water supply are common: surface runoff, groundwater, forced filling of reservoirs-digging from a guaranteed source of water supply and a combined diet.
Surface runoff is the main type of water supply of all dam reservoirs. The difference lies only in the ratio of the volumes of the basin of the reservoir and the volumes of the flow. With a significant excess of flow volumes, it is possible to create a cascade of reservoirs located on the same watercourse. Continue reading
