Abstract The report is concerned with the optimal utilization of a composite system of interacting aquifers in which one aquifer leaks into another, and with a surface-water subsystem from the viewpoint of maximizing the value added to the system by operation of a system over a long period of time. The problem is solved through dynamic programming, a sequential decision-making approach. Stochastic recharges, base flow, and natural discharge from the system are considered in addition to the interaquifer leakage. The model developed was applied to the coupled leaky aquifer and surface-water system of the Roswell Basin which forms part of the Pecos River Basin in New Mexico. A hydrologic analysis of the basin was also performed and the results were fed into the dynamic-programming model as input. The optimal operating policies for the two aquifers of the Roswell Basin were derived by taking into consideration the physical characteristics of the system and the extent of the areas to be irrigated with water drawn from the system.
