WEAP and WASH Bear River Systems Models

This resource includes an SQLite file for the Water Management Data Model (WaMDaM) that stores data for two models in the Bear River Watershed in Utah.

The first model is the Watershed Area of Suitable Habitat (WASH) optimization model that allocates water to maximize watershed habitat areas for the Lower Bear River Watershed (Utah portion) (Alafifi and Rosenberg, 2020). The WASH model uses the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) engine which has no user interface.

The second model is a WEAP simulation model that allocates water by water right priority within the Bear River Watershed (Utah and Idaho portions). WEAP has a proprietary database and does not support data publication. Both the WASH and WEAP models were developed from a predecessor 2010 Utah Division of Water Resources model for the lower Bear River basin that had a plain text input file and Fortran computational engine which was depreciated. The WASH model disaggregated irrigation demands within Cache Valley, Utah while the WEAP model extended the model domain upstream to Idaho and Bear Lake.
