The project steering group sought three examples of surface water supply systems in England and Wales to test out the initial conclusions of the research. These early conclusions suggested that 'yield' - how much you can supply during a defined drought sequence - is dependant on how sources are used and on the length of the flow sequence available for behaviour analysis. The East Devon area was offered as a suitable example. It had a strategic reservoir 'Wimbleball' used for direct supply and river augmentation of the river Exe and a generated flow sequence back to 1856 was available for the prescribed flow point on the river Exe. This report outlines the analysis carried out by myself and Duncan Waugh in response to the RanD project request.
