This research is intended to integrate long term operation rules and real time operation policy for conservation and flood control in a reservoir, the familiar yield model has been modified and used to provide long term rule curves. The model employs linear programming technique under given physical conditions, i.e., total capacity, dead storage, spillways, outlet capacity and their respective elevations to find required and desired minimum storage for different level of reliability. To investigate the system behavior resulting from the above mentioned operating policy, i.e. the rule curves, the simulation model was used. Results of the simulation model show that the results of the optimization model are indeed valid.
