VARIOUS YIELDS OF RESERVOIR 1. Yield of the Reservoir. It is the amount of water that can be supplied by the reservoir in a specified interval of time. The specified time interval may vary from a day for a small distribution reservoir to a month or year for large conservation reservoirs. If we say that three million cubic metres of water can be supplied from a reservoir in a year then its yield is 3000000 m3/year. The yield of the reservoir is dependent upon the inflow and thus varies from time to time. 2. Safe Yield. It is also known as firm yield. It is the maximum quantity of water that can be supplied from the reservoir with full guarantee during the worst dry period. 3. Design Yield. The critical period for a reservoir is generally considered, when natural flow in the reservoir is minimum. There is possibility that sometimes…
