A coupled model for water resources allocation regarding water quality control
In this study, a fuzzy credibility constrained programming (FCCP) model is developed for water quantity and quality management with uncertainties in water quality parameters. The proposed method could reflect not only inexact uncertainties in the objective function, variables and parameters, but also fuzzy uncertainties in the right-hand side. Credibility levels which represent satisfaction degrees of the constraints can be analysed. The developed model is applied to a case study of water resources management within one river basin, three subareas and three water users regarding water environment security. According to the different confidence levels and sewage recovery, scenario analysis is conducted to analyse possible events in water allocation and water quality control. The resulting solutions obtained show that the proposed method can help decision-makers to provide scientific bases for water quantity and quality management and energy system planning, solid waste management and other environmental system problems.
