Computers have long been used in water engineering to model hydraulic distribution networks In recent years, computer technology has exploded, yielding computers that are powerful and accessible, and software tools for data management, graphics, and mapping. This paper looks at the evolving use of computer technology to do water planning studies, and proposed a revised approach to building analysis environments that go beyond basic modeling.
