Exploring Management Alternatives with Interactive Simulationby David I. Leib, (M.ASCE), Kansas Water Office, Topeka, United States,

Abstract: A drought exercise was held to disseminate information about a proposed change in reservoir management. In the drought exercise, an interactive operations model was used to simulate drought conditions in a river-reservoir system. Decisions made by the participants during the exercise determined the course of the exercise. By concurrently simulating the system as it is managed and the system as it would be managed with the proposed program in place, participants were able to evaluate the proposed management alternative.
