Water from Small Dams is a handbook that is expected to serve as a guide for technicians and water users who are contemplating to design and construct small earth dams. It emphasizes the need for feasibility studies during the planning stage and also delves into other considerations before construction. Options for water supply are provided by some descriptions of various types of dams such as charco dams, hillside dams and valley dams. The issues of concern in planning for small earth dams such as design, construction and maintenance, bill of quantities and constraints/limitations have been discussed as well.
This handbook provides insights into site investigations, designs, cost estimates, legal aspects and construction and maintenance of small dams. This information is required by local technicians for planning and constructing small dams. Conditions of ownership and other water related legal issues and the significance of environmental impact assessments are discussed in the handbook. Photo illustrations and diagrams make the information more comprehensive and easily understood by any reader.
