Missouri River System Analysis Model. Phase 1
HYDROLOGIC ENGINEERING CENTER DAVIS CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A prescriptive reservoir model, designated as the Hydrologic Engineering Center Prescriptive Reservoir Model or HEC-PRM, was developed and tested for use in analyzing operation of the Missouri River main-stem reservoir system. The model represents the system as a network and uses network-flow programming to allocate optimally the system water. A network approach was selected because it satisfies institutional, economic, environmental, and engineering criteria. The network representation of the Missouri River main stem system includes six reservoir and six non-reservoir nodes. Goals of and constraints on system operation are represented with system penalty functions. Two applications of HEC-PRM were completed 1 analysis of the critical period for the system with the best-currently-available estimates of system penalty functions and 2 analysis of the same critical period with a hypothetical navigation penalty function for the reach between Sioux City and Omaha. According to the reservoir regulation master manual the main-stem system is operated...for flood control, navigation, irrigation, power, water supply, water quality control, recreation, and fish and wildlife.
