A three-volume report was developed relative to the modelling of investment strategies for regional water supply planning. Volume 1 is the study of capacity expansion over time. Models to aid decision making for the deterministic case are presented, and a planning process under uncertainty in future demands is suggested. Two methods for solving the capacity expansion problem are analyzed: a heuristic method and a mixed-integer programming method.
