A Guide to the Reservoirs Act 1975 provides expert guidance on the application of the Reservoirs Act 1975, reflecting the current views and practices of the dam engineering profession.

This fully updated second edition incorporates the latest amendments to the Flood and Water Management Act, reflecting a more risk-based approach to reservoir regulation.

These approaches include reducing the capacity at which a reservoir will be regulated from 25,000m3 to 10,000m3, and ensuring that only these reservoirs assessed as a higher risk are subject to regulation.
