Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Applications in Water Resources


The Brazos River Authority, an agency of the State of Texas created to conserve and develop the surface waters of the 42,000 square mile (110,000 km) Brazos River Basin, is in the midst of a long term project to effectively integrate the use of microcomputers into daily operation of water supply operations and reservoir control. The project consists of three major phases: automated data collection, data management and data analysis, performed to the greatest extent possible on its sixteen bit microcomputers using commercially available software. Applications programs are being developed to permit operation by personnel with little or no computer knowledge.
