Abstract
The primary benefits of SimBLOX to the public are that it helps private and government organizations become better stewards of taxpayers' dollars and it protects our natural resources. The proposed research and resulting proof-of-concept model for this Phase I effort has enormous potential to assist water management agencies in drafting and implementing more effective policies and practices related to managing their overall systems. In addition, SimBLOX will allow alternatives to be considered and decisions made in a much shorter span of time without expending real world resources. Other benefits include being able to clearly and visually demonstrate the cause-and-effect relationships among various elements in the overall water delivery system, as well as enabling better forecasting and planning for a water delivery system.
