A network model for preliminary screening of alternatives for water supply from conjunctive use of groundwater and surface water in a river basin is presented. The results from the analysis for an example river basin demonstrate how the network analysis procedures can be used to determine optimum investment plans, to test policy constraints, and to develop policies for future development and future constraints.
