      Reservoirs A reservoir is an artificial lake called man-made reservoir. It can be formed by building a dam across a valley, by excavating the land or by surrounding a piece of land with dykesand diverting a part of the river flow into the reservoir. The water is stored in the reservoir and can be used for irrigation, hydro-power or as a water. A reservoir (from French réservoir – a "tank") is, most commonly, an enlarged natural or artificial lake, pond or impoundment created using a dam or lock to store water.. Reservoirs can be created in a number of ways, including controlling a watercourse that drains an existing body of water, interrupting a watercourse to form an embayment within it, through excavation, or building any.
