A real-time flood management (forecasting) model is developed for flood operation of the Lower Colorado River-Highland Lake System in Texas. This model combines techniques for one-dimensional unsteady flow routing, rainfall-runoff modeling, graphical display capability, and interactive software capability. Unsteady flow routing is performed using the United States National Weather Service DWOPER model. The model allows for specification of alternative future precipitation and river-level scenarios and operational controls in addition to real-time river levels, reservoir levels, and rainfall.
