This volume investigates what day-to-day actions will bring about the distribution of surface water most beneficial to all water users and uses. It describes the Managerial Strategy Design Model (MSDM), and the results that have been obtained with it. Given a fixed set of facilities, MSDM determines a managerial strategy that yields the lowest possible total cost to all users of water. Chapters 2 through 7 discuss the formulation of the model. The computational features and mechanics of using the model are described in Chap. 8. Chapters 9 through 11 present some results and conclusions obtained from exercising MSDM.
