Raw water supply reservoirs typically consist of a large surface water impoundment, such as a dammed river, and store thousands or even millions of acre-feet of untreated raw water. Finished water reservoirs are typically much smaller in volume and vary considerably with regard to design function, materials of construction, and capacity.   A potentially catastrophic flood was averted in as the largest runoff in years swelled the system of six large U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoirs located on the Missouri River. Record high system releases were required to evacuate excess storage, but were timed to minimize impacts downstream.

The Buffalo was later protected by federal legislation and named the first national river in the United States. Additional dams and multipurpose reservoirs providing hydroelectric power were built on the Little Missouri River (Lake Greeson), the Ouachita River (Lake Ouachita—upstream from Carpenter and Remmel dams), and the Caddo River (Lake. The Cameguadua and San Francisco off‐stream reservoirs in the Cauca River basin near Manizales, Colombia, have operated successfully for many years. These two reservoirs have a total installed capacity of MW at five power stations; they are fed by seven intakes, and accumulated fine sediment is removed by dredging. Sediment Sluicing.
