RiverWare is a tool for building and managing river basin models including hydraulics and operations. Allows a user to select generic basin features from a palette, name the features, and link them together to create basin topology. Allows simulation, rule-based simulation and optimization capabilities.
Tennessee Valley, Colorado River, Upper Rio Grande, San Juan Basin
Water routing, water quality, water quality, Power generation, hydraulics and operating rules
Simulations, and optimizations of conditions, rules, etc.
Linkage to Other Models
Forecasts and real-time inputs possible from external models
Level of Effort
Need to create system topology of sufficient detail for the question at hand, including operational characteristics and rules. Tools available for importing data or models and exporting results.
