A recently completed computer simulation model for a water management and reservoir system for which it was built is reviewed. This system is the collection of constructed and authorized reservoirs in the Upper Wabash Basin in Indiana. The many uses of such a simulation model are discussed. The value of these uses depends on the goodness of the reservoir regulation rules. The development of two variants of a systems operating policy is presented. The development is set forth in such a manner to facilitate adoption and adaptation by water management professionals. The principle involved is that of reservoir balancing. Its adaptation to the flood control and recreational function of a system of existing reservoirs is presented. The development is referenced to the existing Corps of Engineers operating policy for the Upper Wabash reservoirs and retains the complexities of that system and its regulation plan. (Author)
