Afua Owusu, PhD fellow and her supervisory team at IHE Delft and TU Delft have produced a policy brief for improved reservoir operation. The document provides guidelines for reservoir operators and water managers to accommodate environmental flows and thereby improve reservoir operations for the environment and other users.

The research is part of the EuroFLOW project (EUROpean training and research network for environmental FLOW management in river basins). The project is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant Agreement (MSCA) No. 765553.

The best practice guidelines for improved reservoir operation to accommodate environmental flows and meet Water Framework Directive objectives is
now available online.
