Mathematical simulation models have become a common tool for the analysis of water resources problems . The models fall in two categories, those for studying long range planning of water resources development and those for the analysis of detailed operation of water resource systems. The planning models tend to be of a longer time step usually on the order of one month, while the operational models may need a time steps of days and in some cases hours. This paper presents a model that incorporates features of both planning models and operational models. MITSIM-1, a river basin simulation model for long range planning was modified to account for daily operational rules and complex institutional constraints within a basin. A new model ,MITSIM-2 , was developed that provides quasi-daily operational rules for reservoirs and irrigation requirements, while retaining the features necessary for efficient long range planning of basin development . MITSIM-2 is applied to the regional water supply system of South Western Skane to demonstrated its applicability to incorporate planning and operational analysis successfully in one model.
