177. Where to Build New Reservoirs

Description

This Environmental Studies Factsheet provides a revision summary of the main points. Future Geography Factsheets will consider some of them in much greater detail... Before that, let’s summarise where we should and probably shouldn’t put them! Remember the dam is the massive wall that holds the water back;the reservoir is the actual water - be clear which you are talking about in the exam.

This Factsheet explains:
• Advantages and disadvantages of reservoirs.
• Suitable places for dams and reservoirs.

This Factsheet includes practice exam questions.
