Diversion Race (RDR) is a multipurpose irrigation scheme with objectives that
must take into account the view of all stakeholders. For our MSCI Honours
Project we developed a deterministic optimisation model, based on
historical data. This provided insights into the effects of different sizes
of storage on irrigation reliability, and economic benefit of the scheme.
Applying this model to historic data allowed for comparison between
historic benefits and potential benefits from any changes.
