Artificial reservoirs of our planet

An artificial reservoir is a pool of water formed by a human being, for the purpose of its conservation, accumulation and further use. In other words, this place created by man is the place where water is collected, and where it is stored for a long time.


The reservoir is an artificial reservoir designed to store water and use it in the national economy. Very often they are created in river valleys with the help of water-repellent structures, in which case these reservoirs are called river. But they can also be lizards.

It is worth noting that reservoirs are the largest artificial reservoirs. It is understandable, because water from them is used by people everyday. For example, the water flowing in our cranes is precisely from there. And somebody counted how many people spend the water? Very much. So much that if water could not be cleaned, then it would have ended. Present, at least.

Also, this water is used for irrigation of agricultural fields, extinguishing fires, heating, sports and sanitary needs. And these are only the most important goals, and in general water is used everywhere, and it is taken precisely from the reservoirs.


The pond is an artificial reservoir with an area of ​​less than 1 km2. And if we do not count on the sizes, then we could say that these are the same reservoirs. Although this is not always the case. Quite often, the difference between ponds and reservoirs lies in the way they are used. Yes, both, they can store water for economic needs. But, in addition, the ponds can be created for breeding fish or waterfowl, for swimming, and even just for the sake of beauty.

Artificial ponds, if not vital to people, are very important, at least. In fact, all the water we use is taken from there. If you do not take into account the villages and some small towns, of course. Progress in the form of a water supply system has not yet reached all the corners of the country, which gives them plenty of inconvenience. And to understand this, it’s enough to imagine what lives without hot water. You just think about how much effort should be made to warm the water for washing or washing, and how often do you wash in this case? I am silent about the sewage system. Not deadly, of course, but convenience is desirable for many.

And the more I can not understand why people do not appreciate it? Why dare in the reservoirs ?! And they are rubbed in them, and they do not care. And after that, they are still wondering why the water so much smells of bleach. But simply everything: the dirtier the water in the reservoir, the greater the dose of disinfectants are used.

It seems to me that every person in the life at least once inflicted harm to the environment. I myself did it many times. But one of the merits of a person is that he is able to evaluate his actions, is able to understand his mistakes, and knows how to learn. So let’s together learn how to value nature!
