Lakes and reservoirs are bodies of still water.
Still water does not flow.
- Lakes are large areas of fresh water surrounded by land. Ponds are small lakes. Lakes and ponds form naturally.
- Reservoirs are man-made lakes for storing river water. A dam is a strong wall that stops the flow of the water.
