Abstract: One of the main issues appearing today in the field of water resources is the management of complex hydrologic systems consisting of surface streams and aquifers. The management problem includes the dynamic aspects of the regional hydrology, and the incorporation of socio-economic variables in its analysis. This paper presents an approach based on a dynamic programming formulation which considers explicitly some policy factors relevant to the development and utilization of regional water resources.
