Hydroeconomic DSS tools for drought management

Finding and implementation of optimal operating rules on surface reservoirs and aquifers to efficiently face drought impacts by re-arranging demand deliveries in a way that increases the economic benefits and by adopting efficient conjunctive use policies (combining surface and groundwater resources)

Developed by Universidad Politécnica de Valencia

A hydroeconomic DSS tool able to solve both simulation and optimization problems. It requires as input the physical and economic components of the system. The simulation module allocates water resources following a given operating policy implemented through two techniques: priority-based allocation or fuzzy-rule-based-system allocation. The optimization module finds out optimal decisions to maximice the economic benefits during water shortage events. It implements both determinsitic and stochastic approaches, as well as groundwater and stream-aquifer interaction techniques

TRL7. Integrated pilot system demonstrated
ProSystem prototype demonstration in operational environment. Prototype near or at planned operational system. Represents a major step up from TRL 6 by requiring demonstration of an actual system prototype in an operational environment. It has been tested in the Jucar water basin in the framework of several PhD research projects, and the support of experts of the River Basin Authority (RBA).

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

Our IT technology is a software toolbox that provides a valuable solution for drought risk management through the integration and combination of hydroeconomic models (with economic characterization of water values at the main uses) and inflow forescasting algorithms.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

No. It is applicable to all water resource systems under water scarcity conditions More information about the innovation, the methods it implements and its application to the Jucar river system in: PhD Dissertation

Added value
Integration of economics in drought risk planning and management using a probabilistic approach.
