The project evaluates simulation as a planning and mangement tool for water resources, evaluated in the context of the Truckee and Carson River System in Nevada and California. A simulation model of the two-river system was constructed which was verified using historical flows and management practices. This simulation model was then embodied in an optimization algorithm for the system as a whole. The problem was formulated as a capacitated flow network and solved using an out-of-kilter algorithm. The reservoir releases and diversions from several flow traces were then subjected to multiple regression analysis to determine optimal operating rules for the five reservoirs and for diversions within the system.
