Abstract : A mathematical model system was developed to provide an expedient method of evaluating candidate reservoirs. The models can be used to perform both functional and cost evaluations. These evaluations can then be used for comparisons of candidate reservoirs. The formulation of the models and data requirements to evaluate alternate candidates to the Rowlesburg Reservoir, West Virginia, are discussed. Examples of analyses of reservoir capacity, flood storage-flow augmentation, and visitation are presented. (Author)
