How can evaporation losses from Australian dams be reduced?



  1. 0 Votes

    Dam design can significantly decrease evaporation by reducing the surface area to volume ratio (deeper, narrower dams) and planting windbreaks to provide shade and reduce wind turbulence. Beyond structural measures, efforts to minimize water loss are further aided with floating plastic covers and chemical products that change the surface characteristics of the water and reduce evaporation.
