Abstract

Integrated management policies for water resources utilization of Dachia watershed in Taiwan Shin-Cheng Yeh\ L. F. Chang^ & H. C. Yir* * Department of Civil Engineering, National Chi-Nan University, Taiwan, ROC ^University of California at Los Angeles, USA ^Cheng-Shin Institute of Technology, Taiwan, ROC Abstract Water resources of Dachia River in central Taiwan have been used for domestic, agricultural, and hydroelectric sectors. Historically, these sectors have utilized water resources individually and integrated management of water resources is lacking. The most important reservoir for domestic water supply was destroyed in a Ritz Scale 7.3 earthquake in 1999, making efficient water resources planning and management urgent. This research is to identify acceptable management policies for the objectives of domestic and agricultural water uses as well as power generation using problem-specified VBA simulation programs, provided no new hydraulic facilities will be permitted and built
