Overview

The Rangitata 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.
