Groundwater yield-reliability analysis and operating rules for data
Expanded Title:Water supply systems that obtain water from groundwater reservoirs require operating rules/strategies to regulate the competing water uses, ensure the beneficial use of water and also account for groundwater reserve. Management strategies are also required to address the unique characteristics and roles of groundwater. Groundwater yield-reliability analysis is required when deriving operating rules. Operating rules provide statements on water to be allocated from a given resource at a given time. The study concluded that since groundwater can meet domestic demand at the highest recommended reliability level, its development for use or integration with run-of-river (ROR) and rainwater would improve on the livelihoods of residents of Siloam Village. An earlier study had shown that run-of-river (ROR) and rainwater improves yield and reliability up to 1:25 (96%) for a period of 9 months, which is below the recommended level of assurance of supply of 1:100 (99%).
