Excerpt
Excerpt: Even when not operated for flood control, storage reservoirs regulate floods to a certain extent ... If a storage reservoir is a multi-purpose scheme and improved flood control is one of the objectives, then the benefits from flood control should just be sufficient to compensate for the loss of benefits for the other purposes. (Pareto optimality should be guaranteed) ... Software is available to derive optimum operating rules for multi-purpose reservoirs ... There are important institutional problems to be resolved, especially if the dam is a non- Government undertaking. Specifically it should be known from where the dam owners and/or operators would obtain a reward for enhancing flood control ... It should be realized that the function(s) of a dam may change with time: a project primarily built for power, may one day primarily be used for irrigation water supply or flood control.
