This study is about the optimisation of a planning model for river basin water management. The study area is the Hunter River Basin - NSW - Australia. It has 7 major demand points which require water for irrigation and/or water supply, and 6 major supply points which consist of four controlled reservoirs and two uncontrolled rivers. The problem is specified as 'how to operate the four reservoirs to satisfy the demand points as much as possible' . This is the basis of the general planning model. To solve it, an approach combining an optimisation method and a simulation method is used.
