Abstract: A statistical simulation of monthly streamflow sequences in a multiple-site configuration in the Tahoe-Truckee system, is presented. Data preparation consisted of: (1) Conversion of historic streamflow values, wherever necessary, to what the values would be if it were not for the regulation effort; and (2) reconstitution of missing flow values in the record. The general statistical properties of the simulated sequences were found to be comparable to those of historic sequences. Inconsistencies which were discovered with regard to monthly water balance of the simulated sequences are outlined.
