Mini Dam Water Studies

Hardbone offers excellent services about mini dams to solve water problem. Our expert engineers have studied about mini dams. For many centuries, dams play an essential role to store water for different purposes, such as irrigation, water supply, hydroelectric power and flood control. Dam are structures that present particular challenges and complexities. We give solution to your problems. The quality of the water impounded by a dam must be considered in the planning and design of a project. The construction of small dams is the possible solution to remediate this problem. These infrastructures must be located in suitable areas to be successful.

This study aimed to find the most suitable locations for small dams. Our consultant uses unique approach to implement a multi-criteria evaluation analysis through an Analytic Hierarchical process. This information raises concerns about the future effectiveness of these infrastructures and should be carefully analyzed by planners to better address the population’s water needs in the region. However, small dams are equally important to store and conserve water for increasing irrigation and drinking water sources and improving socio-economic conditions of the area.

Advantages of Dams

Dams are advantageous in different aspects. Dams ensures the benefits of improved health and life by supplying clean water, improved quality of sanitation, increased fish production, irrigation supply, protection of lives and goods from flood, generation of electricity as well as the recreation and environmental benefits of dams. The advantages of constructing water mini dams are as below:


For evapotranspiration crops and plants need irrigation. The huge amount of water reserved in dams is used for irrigation. Sustained supply of water for irrigation, encourages peoples to use additional areas for cropping. This enhances the increment of the food supply.

Drinking Water

A portion of storage is withdrawn from reservoirs and supplied for drinking, municipal and industrial purposes. After proper treatment supplied water can be used for drinking. The water supply through dams enables people to drink pure water. This will prevent people from getting affected by water-borne diseases like cholera.

Electrical Generation

Once constructed, electricity is generated from dams at a constant rate. The budget item of an electricity dam is least as there is no pricey fuel needed. Electricity dams additionally tend to last longer than thermal power plants. Hydropower generation is non-consumptive nature. Also, the resource is renewable and can be used again and again in the downstream for power generation.

Flood Control

During flood season, the flow of water in the downstream can be controlled by a dam. The reduction of the flood will save the crops and property from being washed away. It also reduces congestion of runoff in plains and coastal lands. Avoiding flood hazards can ensure the sustained economy of the whole country. It can be mentioned as the economic impacts of dams.

Mine Tailings

Tailing dams are quite different from water dams. These dams are used to store the waste product from mining operations. Wastes from mining are called tailings. Tailings are very toxic. Dams can be used to store tailings to ensure the protection of the environment from being polluted.

Water Storage

The storage of water in reservoirs can be beneficial in many aspects. Upstream water ponds can be used for fish farming which can reduce the damage that has been done to the fish habitat due to the construction of the water dam.

Environment Friendly

Reduce the emission of greenhouse gas e.g. carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). Tailing dams help to protect the environment from getting contaminated by toxic mining wastes.

Debris Control

Debris flows, often the result of environmental degradation in mountainous areas can be an extreme geological catastrophe. Detention dams are used to control the flow of hazardous materials and sediments.


Dam areas can be used for recreation purposes. Boating, skiing, camping, picnic areas, and boat launch facilities are all supported by water dams.
