SC130001 - Guide to drawdown capacity for reservoir safety and emergency planning

Theme:Asset Management
Project status:Completed
Start date:10/06/2013
End date:04/09/2017


This project has researched the preferred drawdown capacity for reservoirs in the UK and provides guidance on consistent methods for assessing the adequacy of existing drawdown facilities. 

The guidance is intended for reservoir inspecting engineers who are required under UK reservoir legislation to review the drawdown capacity of reservoirs. Reservoir owners may also find the guidance useful.

The guidance is in two parts: volume 1 and volume 2.
