Thermal stratification occurs in most natural water bodies, however, its occurrence in drinking water service reservoirs has not been thoroughly investigated in the past. In order to facilitate the use of a lumped model to simulate the mixing and water quality within reservoirs, temperature monitoring studies have been conducted in some reservoirs in Sydney. The results showed that thermal stratification developed in most reservoirs studied, and through the use of the JETLAG model, it has been concluded that stratification can significantly affect mixing in the reservoirs, and hence needs to be incorporated into any reservoir simulation models.
