Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / water management
Spanish term or phrase: resguardo
Hi, I'd appreciate your help with this term.

The text is about water management. I wanted to confirm that this is refering to "freeboard"

Context is:
"Con la avenida de proyecto determinada de acuerdo con la normativa de Azerbaijan, se simulará la laminación de avenidas partiendo de distintas cotas iniciales del embalse, lo que permitirá determinar los caudales vertidos en cada hipótesis. El análisis de una serie de resguardos combinada con distintas maniobras de los órganos de desagüe permitirá establecer un valor para el ***resguardo*** mínimo necesario.

Deberá comprobarse que, con dicho ****resguardo***, se garantiza la seguridad de la presa y no se sobrepasan los niveles que se establezcan.

Otro tipo de ***resguardos*** que se calcularán son aquellos en los que los caudales vertidos no generan daños por la inundación del cauce de aguas abajo, operando de forma similar, pero limitando los hidrogramas de vertido en función de los daños potenciales aguas debajo de las presas.

Los ***resguardos*** definitivos a adoptar serán, previsiblemente, una solución de compromiso entre ambas situaciones anteriores, y cuyos valores serán aprobados por el Director."

Thanks :)
