    3 cross walls, each of dimension 24m x 4m x 0.4m will  separate reservoir with dimensions 32m x 24m x 4m into 4 equal chambers. The sum of the volumes of

    the chambers = Rv - Cv where Rv = reservoir volume and Cv = total volume of

    the 3 cross walls. Rv = 32*24*4 [m]^3 = 3072 [m]^3. Cv = 3*24*4*(0.4) [m]^3 =

    115.2 [m]^3.Required volume = (3072 - 115,2) [m]^3 = 2956.8 [m]^3.

    Calculate the volume of the reservoir.  Subtract the volume of the cross walls.  Do not double count the volume where the cross walls intersect (it's small but it will affect your answer).
