Abstract : This report presents the results and conclusions of an application of the Hydrologic Engineering Center's Prescriptive Reservoir Model (HEC-PRM) for seasonal operation of the Columbia River System. A position analysis approach is used to suggest promising seasonal operations for the Columbia River System which can be updated throughout the annual drawdown refill cycle. Such HEC-PRM-based seasonal reservoir operation advice could offer guidance in simulation testing and reduce the number of simulation runs needed to formulate seasonal operation plans.
