Abstract: A methodology for evaluating water planning alternatives was developed and applied to the Nebraska Platte River. The methodology involved a micro-computer based screening model and a multi-objective optimization model. This procedure was found to be cost effective, flexible and consistent with the needs of today's socio-economic planning environment.
