A river reservoir operations model (RROM) was developed to assist the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District manage flows in the Upper Hudson River Basin. The purpose of the RROM is to give a better understanding of the hydrologic activity in the Basin, and thus improve flow regulation. Combining developed nonlinear regression models, the RROM predicts stream flow responses to precipitation. The RROM is a user friendly interactive computer program written in the Tektronix version of B-BASIC. The program utilizes the graphics capability of the system and is operational on a Tektronix 4052 micro computer. The simple input required by the RROM includes known hydrologic parameters and estimable meteorologic values.
