We consider a dam in which the release rate depends both on the state and some modulating process. Conditions for the existence of a limiting distribution are established in terms of an associated risk process. The case where the release rate is a product of the state and the modulating process is given special attention, and in particular explicit formulas are obtained for a finite state space Markov modulation.
