The water rights analysis package (WRAP) simulates surface water development, allocation, management and use and performs reliability and frequency analyses of simulation results. The computer modeling system facilitates assessments of hydrologic and institutional water availability and reliability in satisfying requirements for reservoir storage, water supply diversions, environmental instream flows, hydroelectric energy generation and flood control.
According to the abstract, this paper explores concepts and methodologies incorporated in WRAP and other comparable modeling systems, as well as exploring the implementation of water availability modeling in Texas and contributions to effective water management.
The journal — an online, peer-reviewed journal published by the nonprofit The Texas Water Journal and the Texas Water Resources Institute — publishes papers as they are completed. It is devoted to the timely consideration of Texas water resources management, research and policy issues from a multidisciplinary perspective that integrates science, engineering, law, planning and other disciplines. It also provides updates on key state legislation and policy changes by Texas administrative agencies.
