Water Flow Forecasts for its Rational Use in Industry
Basilashvili Ts. Z..
Reservoirs are the most efficient means of managing water resources for the aim of their regulation and rational use. Hydroelectric stations (HES) (30 in Western and 7 in Eastern Georgia), irrigation and drainage canals and aqueducts for water supply have been constructed. Their exploitation is greatly dependent upon the quality and timeliness of hydrological prognosis. Having efficient methods for forecasting water flow to the water reservoirs is of paramount importance as only they can ensure no stoppage in operation of the HES and other systems.
