The Reservoirs (Scotland) Regulations 2015 supports the implementation of the Reservoirs (Scotland) Act 2011 as regards controlled reservoirs (those containing 10,000m3 of more of water above the natural level of any part of the surrounding land, being an artificial or partly artificial reservoir or structure). The regulations determine the means to calculate reservoir volume, and how the Act applies. The regulations also support the controlled reservoirs register to be operated by SEPA. Part 4 concerns the appointment of reservoir engineers to panels under the Act.
