Abstract

This project provides a system of decision making tools which serves to more efficiency monitor and understand the hydrologic behavior of the Wachusett Reservoir in Massachusetts. A mass balance Excel model and working reservoir model in Stella were designed that incorporate analyses of the hydrologic flows in the system. This project served as a basis for the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation to re-evaluate the current methods for calculating yields in the Wachusett Reservoir.
