Abstract

The purpose of this research is to describe a water-storage method that is more reliable than reservoirs, and to study the efficacy of interception and storage of surface runoff in ponds. In this method, a series of ponds is laid out along a streambank so that interception of surface runoff can be increased and more water can be stored in the wet season for use in the dry season. The simulated results show that the structure of a pond, vegetation and the extent of land development, topographic slope, and the degree to which a pond penetrates an aquifer affect the efficacy of interception and storage of surface runoff in ponds. do consiste en crear una serie de lagunas a lo largo de las riberas de un torrente, de manera que intercepción de la escorrentía superficial se pueda incrementar y se almacene más agua en la época húmeda para su utilization en la época seca. Los resultados simulados muestran que la estructura de las lagunas, la vegetación, el grado de desarrollo del terreno, la pendiente topográfica y el grado de penetration de la laguna en el acuífero afectan la eficacia del método.
