This program was developed to assist in planning studies required for the evaluation of proposed changes to a system and to assist in sizing the system components for flood control and conservation requirements for each component recommended for the system. The program can be used in studies made immediately after a flood to calculate the preproject conditions and to show the effects of existing andor proposed reservoirs on flows and damages in the system. The program should also be useful in selecting the proper reservoir releases throughout the system during flood emergencies in order to minimize flooding as much as possible and yet empty the system as quickly as possible while maintaining the proper balance of flood control storage among the reservoirs. The above purposes are accomplished by simulating the sequential operation of various system components of any configuration for short interval historical or synthetic floods or for long duration nonflood periods, or for combinations of the two.
