Homework Help: Water Supply Reliability Modeling assignment + datasheet

  1. Nov 7, 2017 #1
    • Thread moved from the technical forums, so no Homework Template is shown
    I am taking a my first water management course and I need your help getting through my first Water Supply Reliability Modeling assignment. It involves a data set that I must manipulate and a problem set. I am not a civil engineer, so I do not know where to start with this.

    The only hint I have : I will need to create an If , If, else statement with data set in excel

    Here is a link to the assignment : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OWrnzbxPVsaL5KtNnxglMEPKlgwXDwVNVOVEfiXxsUk/edit?usp=sharing

    and here is the excel data set: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1t_HVQOXPQ4XF8dXfzbuaLaMIiiYwqzZpfKDKLrf9QXI/edit?usp=sharing

    Can any of you help me?

    Thank you!!

    Break the problem down into small chunks. I suggest making a hand sketch of reservoir level for one year, using data for any one year from the data set. Then repeat for a year with high inflow, and a year with low inflow. Then add in one variable at a time until you are able to solve the entire problem.

    Looks like the assignment was due today. @shemsuni -- were you able to figure it out?

    Also, this is a pretty funny acronym from the assignment, at least when it is used in the context of water quality... :biggrin:
