Hi,
I would like to know if it is possible to assess water resources (surface and groundwater) using the WEAP model.
Thank you.

Hi,
Yes, It is possible. WEAP can evaluate and assess surface and groundwater resources, but it depends on the level of your assessment and the indicators you are looking for.

Hi,
I would like to estimate the quantity of water resources (surface and groundwater) in my basin using the WEAP model in order to make a good distribution among users.
I would like to have information on how to proceed.
Thank you.

Hi,

In fact, you are going to allocate water(surface water or Groundwater) to different stakeholders. It is possible to do this concern using the WEAP, but the most important thing is water allocation policy in the case study. In other words, you have to know demand priorities, supply preference, the demand quantities, etc. WEAP ables to estimate water resources and simulate water allocation to different demands in the system you introduce in the model. Moreover, making a conceptual model for identifying the connection between different elements in the model is so important. I highly recommend studying some documents that have published using WEAP.

Hossein
