Methodology for analyzing alternative reservoir shortage and operating criteria, A
The Bureau of Reclamation's shifting emphasis from a construction oriented agency to a water management agency has initiated the development of analytical tools for estimating the benefits, and changes in benefits, of alternative reservoir sizes (for new projects) and operating criteria (for existing projects). This paper presents a new methodological approach for estimating the marginal, or change in, economic benefits for a project and applies it to several case studies. The modeling system developed from this effort links a spreadsheet-based model of reservoir operations to economic models ...
