This is civil engineering - Ardingly Reservoir in West Sussex, England

Ardingly Reservoir is a 198-acre reservoir holding 5.2-million litres of water that feeds the River Ouse located in West Sussex, England.

The reservoir was created in 1978 by damming Shell Brook, a tributary of the River Ouse which flows into the Ouse about 500m south of the reservoir, before being treated and distributed to consumers by South East Water Corporate.

Reservoirs are one of the mix of solutions to South Africa’s water shortage. It has been proven internationally (especially in the Western Cape) that it is possible to decrease water consumption on a large scale, without significant sacrifices in the day-to-day lives of people. The Western Cape's drought helped create water-savvy thinking in the province’s residents, radically changing perceptions and behaviour over a relatively short period.
