Abstract:The concept of network models is introduced and a general network model for a multiple purpose, multiple unit water resource system is developed. The "out-of-kilter" algorithm is then presented as a solution technique for network flow problems. A model for preliminary screening of alternatives for water supply from conjunctive use of ground water and surface water in the Kaskaskia River Basin in Illinois is presented and analyzed. The results from the analysis demonstrate how the network analysis procedures can be used to determine optimum investment plans, to test policy constraints, and to develop policies for future development and future constraints.
