Abstract

Developing water resources facilities is the traditional measure to reduce the shortage if the yield of a water supply system is unable to cope with the rising demand. The optimal capacity expansion strategy should provide sufficient water to satisfy the required demand during the time horizion with minimum construction and operation, maintance and repairment costs. The yield of a regional system is jointly contributed by existing and newly developed water resource facilities. It should be estimated before setting up the optimal scheduling strategy of proposed projects in a regional water supply system. This paper applied a generalized water resources allocation model to simulate the increased system yields of different combinations of proposed water resource facilities.It then applied the dynamic programming to optimize the schedule of developimg proposed projects to reliably supply water. This study devised the master plan of the Keelung river system in northern Taiwan as an example. All potential projects scheduled were proposed by Water Resources Agency, Taiwan. The optimal scheduling strategy of minimum developing cost in the studied time horizion of the Keelung river system was determined along with meeting future water demands.
