This paper illustrates how knowledge-based expert systems can obtain, organize, document, store, and utilize valuable complex reservoir systems experience, obtained by experienced water managers through the day-to-day operation. It also describes how expert systems can be designed and used on a real-time basis for the operation of multipurpose multireservoir systems. A knowledge-based expert system has been developed for the real-time operation of the Mark Twain Reservoir system. It demonstrates the practical utilization of expert systems in a multipurpose operation (hydropower, water supply, flood protection, conservation, water quality, recreation and navigation) of a multireservoir river system.
