The state of the water resources of the Panay River Basin have motivated studies and initial basin planning to mitigate flood damages, to produce hydroelectricity, and to increase irrigated rice areas. The goal of this study was to provide the optimal design parameters for facilities potentially to be placed in the basin and the water management variables associated with operating these facilities. This study considered four reservoirs, four hydropower facilities, and an irrigation facility. Screening model optimization produced results to provide insight for future water resources management in the basin. The modeling was completed in GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System).
