D-Risk reservoir is designed for exploratory use regarding sizing and costing of on-farm irrigation reservoirs and cannot substitute for professional advice. The indicative costs provided by D-Risk reservoir are estimates based on ‘best fit’ regression relationships between costing and volumes for a diverse range of constructed on-farm reservoirs. The actual costs may vary significantly depending on the unique site and geological conditions of each farm.
