Run the River!
Water is scarce and needs to be shared around. You must run the river to deliver the bubbles of water from the river to the wetlands, farms and communities, whilst keeping the river mouth connected to the ocean. Control the dam releases to quench the thirst of all your water consumers through the challenges of flood, drought, evaporation, seasonal changes, salinity, watertable rise and increased water demand. Can you successfully run the river?
In Run the River, levels are based on historic periods and provide examples of some of the challenges in managing water resources.
