Effects of silt and sediment in dams:

Silt washes into dams and water catchment areas, thus reducing storage volume while increasing the chance of algal blooms and increases the proportion of water lost to evaporation.

De-silting affected dams will reduce the likelihood of algal blooms, increase storage volume and prolong the life of the dam structure.
