Check out this Swiss-related text: Multipurpose schemes include drinking water power plants, irrigation water power plants, raw and treated waste
water power plants, runoff water power plants using rain water, storm water or urban runoff. Besides that, there
are also reserved flow or compensation flow power plants and power plants that use the water flow of fish passes,
navigation locks and dams, desalination plants and cooling or heating systems. It is important for multipurpose
schemes that the power plants are integrated in an existing or predefined infrastructure, which guarantees the
primary function of the scheme. As a consequence, the design of plants is limited to certain binding conditions
(Esha, 2010).
