Description

In the attempts to apply models to complex water systems we must consider the interests and opinion of numerous stakeholders. The use of these models does not eliminate the risk of making mistakes but can better inform all these different stakeholders (Loucks and van Beek, 2005). The success (or failure) of these attempts is often hard to judge. Many possible frameworks have been presented to judge success.
