Thermoelectric power stations on regulated rivers may cause violations in stream temperature standards if the dilution water from the upstream reservoir is not adequate. However, it is possible that such violations would occur over a short period or that there exists an acceptable temperature violation range. A minmax model is developed for determining the minimum value of the maximum violation of the temperature standard, the reservoir storage, and release levels for reservoir-river systems. The mode is applied to the Shellmouth Reservoir in Manitoba, Canada.
