Small reservoirs development has the potential especially the rural to increase water harvesting and storage towards ensuring adequate supply to a wider population, facilitated by the relatively little expenditure required for their construction. Despite their immense significance, developing small reservoirs beyond a certain threshold in a catchment/basin may pose significant adverse effect on the hydrology of that basin. This research therefore sought to explore the impact of small reservoirs and dugouts in the Ghana on hydrology and water allocation in the Black Volta Basin using the Water Evaluation and Planning System (WEAP) and satellite imagery.
