The Current Accounts represent the basic definition of the water system as it currently exists. Establishing Current Accounts requires the user to "calibrate" the system data and assumptions to a point that accurately reflects the observed operation of the system. The Current Accounts are also assumed to be the starting year for all scenarios. Note that the Current Accounts Year is not meant to be an "average" year, but the best available estimate of the current system in the present. Typically, you would choose the most recent year for which you have reasonably complete data. The Current Accounts include the specification of supply and demand data (including definitions of reservoirs, pipelines, treatment plants, pollution generation, etc.) for the first year of the study on a monthly basis.
