The paper is of particular interest in semi-arid countries and the Author has shown the existence of a relationship between silt slopes inside the reservoir, river slopes and the ratio of length and average width of the reservoir. It may, however, be pertinent to draw attention to the fact that these phenomena are part of the whole. The part relates to a particular reservoir, the whole relates to the profile of the river as a whole. The phenomenon of silt deposition in reservoirs is undoubtedly a part of nature's reaction to a disturbance of balance.
