In this paper comprehensive simulation models are presented which can forecast the streamflow in real time at various points in river systems and provide a tool for identifying improvements of the reservoir operations during flood situations while taking into consideration the conditions downstream. The mathematical modelling has involved rainfall-runoff predictions as well as flood routing. The application of the modelling system to a part of the 22,000 square kilometres Damodar River Catchment located in Bihar and West Bengal in India, is described.
