Square Pegs – Adapting Existing River Basin Simulation Models for Planning Purposes
  Jon Albright—Freese and Nichols, Inc.

The Sulphur River Basin in East Texas is one of the most productive river basins in the state.  Because the basin is located near rapidly growing areas of North Central and Northeast Texas, numerous water supply projects have been proposed for the basin.  The Sulphur Basin Feasibility Study was initiated to develop a definitive plan for new reservoirs and/or reallocation of flood storage in existing reservoirs that will support quality of life and economic development within and adjacent to the Basin while having the least environmental and social impacts.

Two models have been used to support the study.  The first is the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Sulphur Basin Water Availability Model, which uses the Water Rights Analysis Package platform.  The second is a regulation model of the Sulphur and Cypress River Basins developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which uses a RiverWare platform.  The presentation will include lessons learned in using and adapting two models with very different approaches (and occasionally very different results) for planning support.
