Abstract:

In the past, risk has been considered implicitly in the planning and management of water resources systems analysis. A method is developed through which risk indices are explicitly defined for the operation of a water supply system that provides water mainly to meet regional irrigation and energy requirements. The risk indices obtained can be included in the system objective function to be optimized.
