By considering the catchment in its entirety, optimised hydraulic, economic and environmental solutions can be identified. Complex dynamic models provide the means for the optimisation studies. This paper outlines the need for such an approach and the limitations involved. The conclusions result from an Integrated Catchment Management Programme undertaken in the City of Perth, Scotland. This management programme forms the backbone of
