Expert Answer:

Silt is fine granular material derived from rock or soil. Silt may settle down as sediment at the bottom of a water body or a reservoir like tank. 
Silting is a demerit because it reduces the water holding capacity of a tank. Water holding capacity means the amount of water that a tank can hold.
