Abstract: A micro-computer screening model was developed to analyze the physical and economic efficiencies of a large number of alternative options associated with a given water development project. The screening model simulated water losses and uses of different diversion quantities for each option, and calculated the associated system costs and potential benefits. The model was designed to operate at a low cost over a wide range of economic and physical evaluation criteria. This paper presents the overall methodology and an example of its application to the Platte River in Nebraska.
