Platte River Basin Water Plan Update
2016 Spreadsheet Model

Individual spreadsheets were developed for each of the seven major subbasins of the Platte River System. Each subbasin was then divided into river reaches with a starting and ending node. The nodes were developed where a gage was present; a natural flow location was quantified, at a tributary confluence or the location of a major diversion. Water supply and use were imparted onto each reach to determine the amount of water anticipated withing each reach during a dry, wet and average hydrologic condition.

Each spreadsheet provides the water balance for each of the subbasins. The water balance estimates the amount of water provided to the entire subbasin by using either gaged flow or estimated flow from regression equations.
