Balancing power and non-power benefits of hydroelectric developments has become a controversial issue in the relicensing of projects. Multiple project and multiple objective flow management evaluation is at the core of the controversy. A method for attaining an integrated flow management program is described. The method involves a stream flow simulation model linked with individual modules which enable simultaneous evaluation of the interrelated effects of alternative flow management regimes.
