This paper discusses the use of microcomputers to determine the optimum mix of sources for the Fargo-Moorhead area's water supply network. The area's major water source is the Red River of the North, which forms the border between Minnesota and North Dakota. It is supplemented by water from the Sheyenne River, a series of five surficial aquifers, and an in-stream reservoir. The paper outlines the development and use of the spreadsheet model to determine the best mix of water supply facilities and sources to meet projected demands of the Fargo-Moorhead urban area. It also examines the system's role in evaluating water conservation measures and illustrates the advantages to be gained through conservation.
