Why?

The Prescribed Form of Record (PFR) has two key purposes:

  • The PFR brings together key information about the operation of the reservoir that will be valuable in the event of any problem that may affect reservoir safety
  • The PFR acts as a diary of the life of the reservoir in recording behaviour, maintenance, problems and steps taken to resolve those problems

Who should read this?

This guide would be of particular use for the undertakers (owners or operators of a reservoir) who have ultimate responsibility for the safety of a reservoir.
