Abstract : The Water Control Data System (WCDS) is the data acquisition, management, modeling and decision support system that serves the Corps of Engineers water control mission of operating more than 500 reservoirs. This report documents the history, status, and future plans for improving WCDS. The existing WCDS is described as the circa 1988-1990 snapshot to provide a base for comparing improvement plans. Improvement plans include replacing computer hardware, data acquisition hardware, creation of a corporate water control data base system, and upgrade and development of new decision support software.
