The Dniprodzerzhynsk Reservoir (Ukrainian: Дніпродзержинське водосховище, Dniprodzerzhyns'ke vodoskhovyshche) is a water reservoir located on the lower part of the Dnieper River in Ukraine. Named after the city of Dniprodzerzhynsk, it covers a total area of 567 square kilometres within the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. It was formed in 1963-1965. The reservoir is mainly used for generating hydroelectric power, transportation, fish farming, and human consumption
