  • Reservoir management under predictable climate variability and change

    The potential effects of climate change on future water budget components and streamflow in the Mississippi River (Ontario) are assessed. Analyses of historic hydrometric data indicate an increasing trend in winter streamflows due to the rising winter air temperatures across the region over the latter half of the 20th century. These temperatures have resulted in reduced snow accumulation and ...

  • Automated fuzzy decision and control system for reservoir management

    Traditional approaches to the management of an artificial reservoir involve the use of linear, dynamic, nonlinear or stochastic programming. Hence a purely model-based approach would be extremely difficult and thus, recently, a large number of papers devoted to the solution of reservoir management problems based on fuzzy logic approaches have appeared. In this work, two management problems of a ...

  • Re-oligotrophication as a challenge for tropical reservoir management with reference to Itaparica Reservoir, São Francisco, Brazil

    The process of reservoir eutrophication has been recognised as a central problem in tropical reservoir environmental quality. Effects of eutrophication are complex interactions involving a decrease in water quality, especially loss of aquatic biodiversity, occurrence of undesired species such as cyanobacteria with its cyanotoxins, mass development of macrophytes such as Egeria densa with its ...

  • July is Lake & Reservoir Awareness Month!

    Lakes and reservoirs cover over 40 million acres of the United States. Lakes and reservoirs also play other vital and often hidden, roles. They provide drinking water and irrigation water for agricultural fields and many times a source of electricity and power generation. They also serve an important function of absorbing rainfall and runoff from land, help to prevent floods, and provide ...

  • Development of Surrogate Reservoir Model (SRM) for fast track analysis of a complex reservoir

    Reservoir simulation is the industry standard for reservoir management that is used in all phases of field development. As the main source of information, prediction and decision-making, the Full Field Models (FFM) is regularly updated to include the latest measurements and interpretations. A typical FFM consists of large number of grid blocks and usually takes hours for each run. This makes ...

  • Parameter estimation for eutrophication models in reservoirs

    Excessive eutrophication is a major water quality issue in lakes and reservoirs worldwide. This complex biological process can lead to serious water quality problems. Although it can be adequately addressed by applying sophisticated mathematical models, the application of these tools in a reservoir management context requires significant amounts of data and large computation times. This work ...

  • A decision support procedure for integrative management of dammed raw water reservoirs

    Dammed drinking water reservoirs with their catchment areas and the downstream rivers are dynamic systems that change permanently under the influence of many factors. Their multifunctional use for drinking water supply, flood control, energy production, nature conservation and recreation as well as ecological constraints for the rivers downstream requires an integrative management considering ...

  • Converting detail reservoir simulation models into effective reservoir management tools using SRMs; case study – three green fields in Saudi Arabia

    Reservoir management requires tools that can provide assessment of the field operation, at high speed and accuracy. Informed decision making requires comparison of a large number of scenarios, considering the uncertainties and risks, in a short period of time. To accomplish reservoir management tasks one must sacrifice either the accuracy or the speed. Numerical models provide accuracy but not ...

  • Issues and guidelines for treated wastewater reservoirs design and operation

    The potential wastewater stabilisation during the storage phase might improve significantly water quality therefore making appropriate to use this hydraulic component also as part of the treatment line of a reuse system. An experimental research was carried out in a small farm reservoir, receiving treated wastewater, aimed at investigating design and management parameters (depth, surface/volume ...

  • Real-time optimisation of the Hoa Binh reservoir, Vietnam

    Multi-purpose reservoirs often have to be managed according to conflicting objectives, which requires efficient tools for trading-off the objectives. This paper proposes a multi-objective simulation-optimisation approach that couples off-line rule curve optimisation with on-line real-time optimisation. First, the simulation-optimisation framework is applied for optimising reservoir operating ...

  • Discovering Reservoir Operating Rules by a Rough Set Approach

    An integrated Rough Set approach is proposed and implemented to discover the historical operating rules of a Sicilian irrigation purpose reservoir. Operating rules are derived by expressing monthly releases from the reservoir as functions of stored volume, inflowand release during a 35-years period. This is accomplished through the Rough Set approach as implemented in the Rose package and the use ...
