Abstract : The purpose of the present paper is to propose mathematical models for a river system on which a sequence of dams is built whose principal function is the prevention of flooding (the model may also be of relevance in the control of river pollution). Instead of attempting to obtain explicit solutions to such models for some simple input distributions, the practical use of Markov chain methods in deriving probabilities of flooding when the inputs are assumed to be dependent random variables forming a non-homogeneous Markov chain will be demonstrated.
