Abstract: Minimum flow and level requirements based on ecological, water quality, recreation and other needs are established and used as limiting criteria in the development of a riverine lake as a source of water supply. Daily stage and discharge data generated for a period of 45 years by a continuous hydrologic simulation model provided the basis for the evaluation of water supply potential.
