    14. ABSTRACT The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) engaged the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC), along with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the National Weather Service (NWS), in the development of a flood analysis model for the Delaware River Basin. The flood analysis model was developed to evaluate the existing reservoirs for flood mitigation and provide data to evaluate the effects of various reservoir operating alternatives on flooding locations downstream of the reservoirs. HEC in coordination with DRBC, USGS and NWS created the HEC-ResSim model of the Delaware River Basin. The purpose of this report is to describe the reservoir modeling and flow routing, focusing primarily on the aspects or features the modelers will need to be aware of as further alternatives are developed. 15.
