The need for solving complex hydrologic problems rapidly has led Bureau of Reclamation engineers to the utilization of electronic computers for such studies. Applications have been made to problems in water resources, water requirements, water utilization, flood hydrology, and sedimentation. Optimum solutions of high accuracy are obtained quickly and economically.
