Explanation:

As it is correctly suggested above, the Russian “rezervuar” can be either open or close. If it is open, I would use “water retention basin” or “water impounding basin”. The option “water impounding basin” is more rare.

If it is a tank, I would write “water accumulator tank” (see some examples below):

reservoir


Explanation:
Вернее, часто в подобных случаях используется термин basin, потому что вода накапливается не в баках, а в бассейнах. Если же имеются в виду емкости, то это tanks.

water reservoir/well


Explanation:
a 'water reservoir' or in other words 'well' as you have mentioned that it is about wells. a well is a water storing reservoir here.
Давление воздуха предварительного нагнетания водо-накопительного резервуара слишком низкое. (Reason for a pump not managing to pump liquid.)
The air pressure for priliminary pumping of the water reservoir (well) is too low. may be all due to clay.
