Information on retained water:
In an average year the lake created by the dam is dry in June, July, August and September. The lake is full for the rest of the months except of May (nearly half full) and October (nearly full). Spills maintain wetlands downstream the dam
Increased water storage unit:
Information on increased water storage:
The water stored in the lake created by the retention dam in an average year is 0,017 million m3 per month. The wetland collected certain, reduced, quantities of water for some periods of the year which soon evaporated
Information on runoff reduction:
The average monthly water reduction by the NWRM is estimated to be of the order of 6600 m3. The control could be higher if the controlled releases to the downstream wetlands are considered.
Water quality overall improvements:
Positive impact-WQ improvement
Information on Water quality overall improvements:
The presence of stored water reduces the salinity of the water
Soil quality overall soil improvements:
Neutral impact-no change in SQ status
Information on Soil quality overall soil improvements:
No impact on soil quality is observed or expected.
