Sample text

Whether our children and theirs will inherit an earth with accessible resources, diversity, and beauty is being determined by today’s actions, which frequently give little conscious thought to implications beyond a project’s economic life. Application of sustainability concepts seeks to bring these questions into the sphere of conscious decision making. Even though our vision of the distant future is always clouded, it should not be ignored. Designers of water resource infrastructure have a special responsibility to consider sustainability criteria in their work, and to communicate sustainability criteria to decision makers, because of the large and long-term impacts to infrastructure, development patterns, and the environment caused by projects with their purview.

Modest changes in water supply can be accommodated within the context of increasing efficiency of use. However, when one or more reservoirs provide the primary or sole reliable source of water for a region, loss of these supplies can virtually eliminate the hydraulic base for the society. The consequences will be especially acute in nonindustrial, irrigation-dependent countries with rapidly growing populations. Such areas may lack both the human and capital resources needed to achieve dramatic increases in efficiency, such as a transition from traditional furrow to drip irrigation, and the industrial base required to sustain their population from imported foods.

16 Most of the world's reservoirs, being relatively young and, without sediment management, are in stage 1. The structural and operational requirements for operation in stage 2 or 3 have been investigated or implemented at relatively few sites worldwide. 6 RATE OF STORAGE LOSS The average rate of sediment accumulation in reservoirs can be expressed in volumetric units such as millions of cubic meters (Mm3) or acre-feet per year. However, for comparing reservoirs of different sizes it is convenient to express the rate of sedimentation as the percent of the original storage volume lost per year.
