Large Raised Reservoirs

Natural Resources Wales

This dataset contains details of Large Raised Reservoirs. Natural Resource Wales (NRW) collects and maintains data on all reservoirs designed or capable of holding more than 10,000 cubic metres of water above the natural level of any part of the land adjoining them defined as 'large raised reservoirs' under the Reservoirs Act 1975. Two types of reservoir are maintained within the register:

  - Impounding (Dammed); or

 - Non-Impounding (Pumped/unimpeded);

The register contains details on the type, physical characteristics, inspection details and information on the reservoir undertaker and Panel Engineer overseeing their operation and maintenance. Summaries of certificates and reports are also collated and held for each reservoir but are not part of the electronic database.
