Reservoir and Water Dam construction
« on: November 16, 2013, 06:48:31 PM »
How are reservoirs and water dams made? How can engineers and builders ensure that a reservoir is strong enough to hold tons of water?

There are different types of reservoirs. A dam is a barrier that holds back water; dams are primarily used to save, manage, and/or prevent the flow of excess water into specific regions. Reservoirs are just another term for dam. They are mainly constructed to store water for later use.
