What are the advantages of having water stored in reservoirs rather than pumping it back under ground?

    The advantage is gravity. Most water reservoirs are built high and the water infrastructure built in a slope to utilized gravity to help get the water to the homes and business that need to use it. This works because the gravity creates pressure and the pressure moves the water through the tubes. This of course save energy in pumping. If the water were stored under ground then it would take energy to pump it up every time some one turned on the tap.
