Rutland Reservoir

You need to know the problems of water supply in the UK (which is basically there is enough water for us all but lots falls in the north and west, whereas people mostly live in the south and east). Also you need to know about the case study of one reservoir in the UK. we look at Rutland Water for this … there is a lot of good information for this in the revision guide (here’s the page)

You could also test your knowledge with this simple but handy quick test video I found on you tube.

Also this powerpoint is a very useful one slide summary of the case study Managing the UK_s water linked to Rutland

Finally here is an exam question from 2013 higher paper you could attempt to text how well prepared you are ….

“Discuss the issues which result from building dams and reservoirs” (8 marks)

Case studies worth a last minute look at

IMG_6448

Question 2 – Changing Urban Environments “Improving Squatter Settlements”

Question 4  – Development Gap “International Aid” (and how it is sustainable)

Question 6 – Tourism “Tourism in an Extreme Environment”

We do

  • Rocinha and the Favela Bairro
  • Water aid (and fair trade if you wish)
  • Antarctica

I won’t link to all the resources on this blog for these 3 case studies. I am sure you can use the category cloud and find them. But here is a link to the skeleton revision cards I have produced that show the sections within each case study you need to know
