WEAP: A Comprehensive And Integrated Model Of Supply And Demand
MetadataShow full item record
WEAP, is a menu-driven microcomputer program designed to assist policymakers in evaluating water supply policies and developing sustainable water resource plans. It operates on the basic principle of water balance accounting: water supply vs water demand. Four primary types of system components can be modelled: demand sites, thought of as a related set of water distribution systems; wastewater treatment plants that receive and discharge return flow from the demand sites; local supplies, or non-river based water supply components, each one managed and operated independently; and rivers and their nodes, representing the water resources and other river-based water uses that form a single river network managed together through a river simulation mode. The model was tested in the upper Chattahoochee River Basin, Georgia to evaluate its capability.
