Some inspiration for the word Reservoir that led me to pick it as the name of my company. Our job is to be a place to encourage artists to be the best version of themselves as possible. To be a safe place to explore new ideas and refine them for the public.
- A large natural or artificial lake used as a source of water supply
- A supply or source of something
- a place where fluid collects
- Storage Space
Reservoirs are used to provide the raw water feed to a water treatment plant which delivers drinking water. The reservoir does not merely hold water until it is needed: it can also be the first part of the water treatment process. The time the water is held before it is release is known as the retention time. This isa design feature that allows particles and silts to settle out.
Reservoirs can be used to balance flow in highly managed systems, taking in water during high flows and releasing it again during low flows. When a major storm approaches, the dam operator calculates the volume of water that the storm will add to the reservoir. If forecast storm water will overflow the reservoir, water is slowly let out of the reservoir prior to and during the storm. If done with sufficient lead time, the major storm will not fill the reservoir and areas downstream will not experience damaging flows.
Hopefully that's helpful, thanks so much!
