About this book

Two types of dams are fully described: sub-surface dams, constructed below ground level, which arrest flow in a natural aquifer; and sand-storage dams which impound water in sediments caused by the dam itself. Both are inexpensive and suitable for water supply schemes in rural areas in developing countries.
