Adaptation of the Existing Fryingpan-Arkansas Project RiverWare Planning Model to Support Operational Modeling, Forecasting, and Probabilistic Decision-Making

The existing Fryingpan-Arkansas Project RiverWare planning model was developed to support long-term water management and planning uses such as water supply and policy evaluation. In the model’s current state, it doesn’t support real-time operational uses. The primary objective of this project is to adapt the existing model to support uses for short-term operational decision-making, forecasting, probabilistic risk management, and administration so that the model can be used by Reclamation’s Pueblo Field Office for these purposes with thorough documentation so this process can be used by model developers in the future.
