Abstract : This paper develops models for water planning that will simultaneously consider investment and allocation decisions. The framework is demonstrated for a region which includes the counties of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara in California. The quadratic discontinuous mathematical programming problems resulting from such models are solved optimally by using generalized Benders decomposition.
