    Abstract

    Water resource benefits of integrated reservoir planning were evaluated using data from Iran and England. The results showed that for a given yield, integrated reservoir planning could result in a saving of at least 6% in required capacity when compared with the aggregated storage from analysing reserviors as stand-alone systems. This saving in capacity has implications for other processes associated with reservoir construction such as evaporation fluxes, which were also found to be less for an integrated system.
