Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Policy and Management: Solving the Problems


A previously developed basin scale surface-ground water simulation model has been incorporated into a micro-computer based decision support system that simulates the transient ground water elevations and stream flow rates for the Rattlesnake Basin, within the Ground Water Management District #5, located in south-central Kansas. The system provides district personnel a visual interpretation of the results of the simulations, as well as options that allow for the selection of administrative decisions that affect the water flow characteristics in the region.
