Policy Analysis of Water Management for the Netherlands: Vol. II, Screening of Technical and Managerial Tactics
Jan 1, 1981
When water is extracted from rivers to supply users such as agriculture, the resulting sedimentation may cause costs for shipping or dredging. This volume describes three models, the Sedimentation Model, Dredging Cost Model, and Sedimentation Loss Function Model, built to estimate these costs for tactics which involve extractions from the Waal River. These models help determine procedures which result in the lowest costs and to estimate these costs when different water management tactics are used.
