Knowledge Related to Manjara Dam
Manjara Dam, is an earthfill dam on the Manjara River near keij Beed and Kalamb Osmanabad in state of Maharashtra in India. Till September 2016, the reservoir completely dried up, after four years of no rainfall. At end of September 2016 the reservoir full..â¢ Other Related Knowledge of water storageWater storageLake Boga has a capacity of 37,794 megalitres (8.31410^9impgal; 9.98410^9USgal) at the full supply level of 69.5 metres (228ft) AHDâ and a surface area of 940 hectares (2,300 acres). Under normal operation, water levels in Lake Boga vary between levels of 69.5 metres (228ft) AHDâ and 67.22 metres (220.5ft) AHDâ. At the level of 67.22 metres (220.5ft) AHDâ, there is a depth of up to 2 metres (6ft 7in) of water in the deepest parts of the lake. Although operation and lake levels will vary from season to season, in general water will be harvested into Lake Boga during the winter and spring months. Subject to sufficient water toharvest, the lake generally will be full around November to December.In 2009, after a period of the lake being dry, water started flowing into the lake during 2010, and by 2011, the lake was one of many rivers and water storage facilities in Victoria that was flooded as a result of the 2011 Victorian floods.------Hydrology of water storageThe installation of pipes carrying stormwater into Kinney Run due to development in the watershed has increased erosion in the upper reaches of the stream. This has caused silt to be washed downstream.There are several structures that divert water away from Kinney Run. One of these was constructed in 1972, after Hurricane Agnes, to divert water from the stream under the runway of the Bloomsburg Municipal Airport directly to the Susquehanna River.Typically, when Kinney Run floods, it occurs at the same time as when the Susquehanna River floods. In two storms, Kinney Run has flooded twice. The first time was due to precipitation and the second time was due to backwater from the Susquehanna River. The two floods were the 1972 flood caused by Hurricane Agnes and a flood in January 1996. The second flood occurred approximately 24 hours after the first one on both times. However, in other storms, Kinney Run has only flooded once.------Rimrock Lake of water storageRimrock Lake is a lake along the course of the Tieton River, in Yakima County, Washington state, US.The lake is used as a storage reservoir for the Yakima Project, an irrigation project run by the United States Bureau of Reclamation. An impoundment of the Tieton River, Rimrock Lake's capacity and discharge is controlled by Tieton Dam, a 319-foot (97 m) high structure built in 1925. Rimrock Lake's active capacity is 198,000 acre feet (244,000,000m3).Upstream from the lake, the Tieton River is impounded by Clear Creek Dam, another element of the Yakima Project. About 8 miles (13km) downstream from Rimrock Lake the Tieton River is tapped by the Tieton Diversion Dam, supplying water to the Tieton Main Canal. The canal supplies irrigation water to the Tieton Division of the Yakima Project, with excess and agricultural runoff draining into Ahtanum Creek, west of Yakima.Near the lakes are the communities of Rimrock and Silver Beach.------South Dandalup Dam of water storageSouth Dandalup Dam is a dam in Western Australia. It is located where the South Dandalup River flows out of Lake Banksiadale. The dam was built in 1971 in response to rapid population growth in Perth, Western Australia's capital city, and a resources boom in the Pilbara.With a reservoir capacity of 137.7 gigalitres (4.86billion cubic feet), it is the second-largest dam providing water to Perth. It has a catchment area of 311 square kilometres (120sqmi), a surface area of 21 square kilometres (8.1sqmi) at full storage, and a reservoir length of 22 kilometres (14mi). The dam itself is an earthfilled embankment dam, 43 metres (141ft) high and 268 metres (879ft) wide.Located only 6 kilometres (3.7mi) north-east of the historic town of Dwellingup, and around 90 kilometres (56mi) from Perth, it is a popular recreation area. Western Australia's Water Corporation manages the area, and has provided facilities including picnic areas with gas barbecues, and a number of walk trails.------Location and description of water storageThe pond is located near Maine State Route 180. It is also not far from the community of Ellsworth, Maine. Middle Brook and a number of other small brooks feed into it and Beech Hill Stream flows from the lake. The lake is 4.5 miles (7.2km) long and 12.1 miles (19.5km) around. On average, it is 0.5 miles (0.80km) wide. The average elevation is 199 feet (61m) above sea level.Beech Hill Pond has an area of 1,351 acres (547ha) and a maximum depth of 104 feet (32m). The average depth is 44 feet (13m). The temperature at the surface is 74F (23C), while at a depth of 100 feet (30m), the temperature is 46F (8C).In 1912, the volume of Beach Hill Pond was 322,000,000 cubic feet (9,100,000m3).Beech Hill Pond experiences erosion and also lacks a buffer in some places. The Secchi depth of the lake was approximately 13 metres (43ft) in 1999, 11.5 metres (38ft) in 2003, 9 metres (30ft) in 2004, and 8.5 metres (28ft) in 2007.------Funding and construction of water storageConstruction of the dam was made possible by California voter approval in 1960 of the California Aqueduct project, also referred to as the Feather River project (the source of the water in the northern part of the state north of Auburn). State bonds were issued to finance the project. Pyramid Dam, which first began construction in 1968, is 386 feet (118 m) high. It lies directly behind the mountain rock giving the dam and lake its name - Pyramid Cut - which before the Ridge Route Alternate (later signed as U.S. Route 99) was built through the area in the 1931 to 1933 time period, was just another ordinary mountain. The highway construction of the Ridge Route Alternate caused this mountain to have part of its mass "shaved" off - reduced in size - and after the work to accommodate highway traffic was finished, the shape of the cut was found to resemble a pyramid, and hence the name.------Pleurozia of water storagePleurozia is the only genus of liverworts in the family Pleuroziaceae, which is now classified in its own order Pleuroziales, but was previously included in a broader circumscription of the Jungermanniales. The genus includes twelve species, and as a whole is both physically distinctive and widely distributed.The lower leaf lobes of Pleurozia species are fused, forming a closed water sac covered by a movable lid similar in structure to those of the angiosperm genus Utricularia. These sacs were assumed to play a role in water storage, but a 2005 study on Pleurozia purpurea found that the sacs attract and trap ciliates, much in the same way as Utricularia. Observations of plants in situ also revealed a large number of trapped prey within the sacs, suggesting that the species in this genus obtain some benefit from a carnivorous habit. After Colura, this was the second report of zoophagy among the liverworts.------Bechler Meadows dam proposals of water storageThe Grassy Lake Dam and the Island Park Reservoir in Idaho were the outcome of an ambitious plan to use the abundant waters of Yellowstone National Park for irrigation in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. A variety of projects were proposed starting in 1919, the most advanced of which involved a proposed reservoir in the Bechler Meadows and Falls River regions of the southwest corner of the park, immediately to the north of the Grassy Lake site. In 1926 Idaho politicians led by Representative Addison T. Smith proposed the withdrawal of the Bechler area from the park for construction of a reservoir to collect water for use in Idaho. The backlash from conservationists, who compared the proposed reservoir to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park, derailed the plan, along with disagreements between Wyoming, Montana and Idaho over water rights. The Grassy Lake and Island Park reservoirs were built outside the park as alternative storage sites..------Standley Lake of water storageStandley Lake is a 1,200-acre (4.9km2) reservoir located in Westminster, Colorado. While originally constructed to provide water for the agricultural irrigation of the surrounding region northwest of Denver, it now serves primarily as the municipal water supply for the cities of Westminster, Northglenn, and Thornton. The lake is also used for recreation, and is the prominent feature of the surrounding 3,000-acre (12km2) Standley Lake Regional Park.The reservoir has a maximum capacity of approximately 42,000 acre feet (52,000,000m3) and maximum depth of 96 feet. Most of the reservoir's water is transported over 16 miles from Clear Creek to the south by way of the Church Ditch, Farmer's Highline Canal and Croke Canal. It also receives water from Coal Creek by way of the Kinnear Ditch and from Woman Creek.The lake is owned by the Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (FRICO) while the surrounding park and the recreational use of the lake are managed by the City of Westminster.------The forts of Lysa Hora of water storageIn 1872, a small fortress (part of the Kyiv Fortress) was built on the hill by the Russian army. However, upon completion the fortress was found to be of little military importance and was converted into the military storehouse. Due to its relatively remote location, from 1906 the fortress was used as an execution place for convicted political prisoners of the Tsarist government. Over 200 people were executed there by hanging between 1906 and 1917, one of them was Dmitry Bogrov, the assassin of Pyotr Stolypin.The fortress saw fierce fighting during the World War II, when a unit of local defence volunteers resisted the Nazi offensive on Kyiv.Later, the Red Army used the fortress as storage area till 1980. An underground complex beneath the fortress is sometimes mentioned, but in fact only old water tanks can be found, still filled with rain water. In the 1980s, a radio beacon for aircraft navigation was built on the Lysa Hora.------Social services of water storageWith support from the German Red Cross, Uganda Red Cross Society launched a seed fair in Yumbe District on 19th June, 2020, which enabled both refugees and host communities living in Bidi Bidi and Palorinya refugee settlements obtain seeds of their choice to grow food crops and meet their demands of agriculture due to food ration cut due to the global pandemic of COVID-19.Each beneficiary received a voucher worth 98,000 Ugandan shillings, and he or she picked seeds of their choice, worth their voucher. Michael Nabugere, the Settlement Commandant, Bidibidi Office of the Prime Minister, noted that in 2017 refugees did not want to engage in agricultural practices since they were entitled to receive 100 percent of their food from the Government and now that the seeds were distributed, the farming practices would continue to sore. The Government was only able to supply 30 percent of the refugees food needs, so the refugees had to engage in farming.------Cle Elum Lake of water storageCle Elum Lake is a lake and reservoir along the course of the Cle Elum River, in Washington state USA. Cle Elum Lake is the easternmost lake of three large lakes (two are north and one is south of Interstate 90) in the Cascade Range. The middle one, Kachess Lake is also north of I-90 while the westernmost, Keechelus Lake is south of I-90.Cle Elum Lake is part of the Columbia River basin, as the Cle Elum River is a tributary of the Yakima River, which is a tributary to the Columbia River.The lake is used as a storage reservoir for the Yakima Project, an irrigation project run by the United States Bureau of Reclamation. Although a natural lake, Cle Elum Lake's capacity and discharge is controlled by Cle Elum Dam, a 165-foot (50 m) high earthfill structure built in 1933. As a storage reservoir, Cle Elum Lake's active capacity is 436,900 acre feet (539,000,000 m).------Urinary bladder (Chinese medicine) of water storageAs distinct from the Western medical concept of urinary bladder, this concept from traditional Chinese medicine is more a way of describing a set of interrelated functions than an anatomical organ. (See Zang Fu theory)The Bladder is a Yang (Fu) organ; its paired Yin (Zang) organ is the Kidney. Both are associated with the element of water and the emotion of fear.As opposed to western medicine, where the bladders function is the storage and excretion of urine, the bladder in traditional Chinese medicine has extended functions, including how fluids are transformed during urine production. Fluids are still sent from the small intestine to the bladder for storage, but the bladder's capabilities are dependent on the kidney yang. If the kidney is yang deficient, the bladder may not have the sufficient qi and heat to transform fluids properly into urine. This could result in overly clear urine that must be excreted more frequently.
