Abstract: A recently developed interactive river-aquifer system model (IRAS) was used to study the Raritan River Basin as part of the effort to revise the New Jersey Statewide Water Supply Master Plan. The major issues in the Raritan basin are: (1) the integrated use of surface water and groundwater, (2) provision of the statutory minimum flows along the Raritan River, and (3) design of the facilities and policies necessary to reliably provide for future demands.
