Studies were made to determine the feasibility of applying recently developed analytical techniques to the problem of planning for optimal water resource development. An optimal plan with regard to the size and location of proposed reservoirs was taken to be that physical configuration which provided the greatest net economic benefit to the people of the region while meeting future water needs. The research was aimed at providing an improvement over planning techniques which have not taken into account the interacting effects which exist between each reservoir and all downstream reservoirs. For the purpose of formulating a mathematical model for this type of problem, a number of recently developed optimization techniques were studied. The intercoupled staging structure of the process was exploited by means of nonserial dynamic programming algorithms developed in the course of the research project. (Author)
