    For a water project which incorporates a dam, a major hydrological task is to determine the storage size required at the dam site which will supply the demand with an acceptable level of reliability. Over the past three decades, the development of techniques for undertaking this task has engaged hydrologists and there now exist many techniques of varying complexity and data requirements. This entry presents the essential elements of some of the readily useable techniques for sizing the capacity of reservoirs.
