This report provides a comprehensive guide on the development and use of flood storage reservoirs, drawing on good practice in UK and international reservoir planning, design, operation and maintenance.

Provision of flood storage in a reservoir constructed on or near a watercourse can help to reduce flood risk, particularly as part of a catchment-wide flood risk management strategy.
