This project, sponsored by the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, provides a set of recommendations for reducing the frequency of dredging of reservoirs in Puerto Rico. It combines data from sedimentation surveys, water-use data reports, census reports and interviews to form a more complete understanding of the lifespans of freshwater reservoirs. Using ArcGIS and Microsoft Excel software, maps and graphs were created to visually represent the data for the four major reservoirs included in our study. Based on past studies and statistical data, recommendations were made to control upland erosion in the feeding streams of reservoirs.
