This project has been carried out with the aim of providing a comprehensive, up to date review of the impact of climate change on dams and reservoirs. It takes advantage of the projections and tools that are available from UKCP09, and other research that has become available over the past few years.

The report contains an evidence based identification of the potential impacts of climate change on reservoirs and dams. It also contains guidance that practitioners can make use of easily and quickly to provide a robust and auditable assessment of the risks of climate change and the implications it has for their strategic asset management processes.
