Abstract

This draft final report integrates three sub-reports:

Part 1: A technical review and synthesis of research including case studies for selected products.

Part 2: A market assessment, based on a survey of manufacturers, suppliers, installers and users, with analysis and interpretation of market intelligence.

Part 3: Regional analysis of and recommendations for suitable locations for evaporation mitigation demonstration trials, to encourage the uptake of cost-effective Evaporation Mitigation Technologies (EMT’s).

The report provides baseline information on the range of EMT’s available to reduce evaporation from dams. It details their suitability for different dam types and sizes, the factors that make them economically viable and the barriers to their uptake.
