2.3.4 Reservoirs Example 2

Location of Example: 151°06'32" East, 24°47'52" South,
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Town Rural Storage in this example is being used to provide water to the aquacultural facility and not for human consumption.
  • Dam Walls are absent from naturally occurring Lakes.
  • Dam Walls can be constructed from both concrete, stone and earthen materials. Each will display a different signature on multispectral imagery.
  • Dam Walls may enclose the partial boundary of the Reservoir or its entirety depending on the topography and method of construction of the Reservoir.
Regional Considerations:
