This tutorial will introduce you to WEAP, the Water Evaluation And Planning system, and how it can be applied to integrated water resources management. The exercises presented in this document are normally used as part of a WEAP training course, but can also be used for self study. They assume that you have some background in water resources issues and familiarity with Windows-based software, including spreadsheets (such as Microsoft Excel).
The training exercises are designed as a series of twelve independent modules, although the first three modules --
"WEAP in One Hour," "Basic Tools," and "Scenarios" --
are the foundation of the following nine modules, and should be completed first. If you only have a few hours and want to get a general impression of how WEAP works, then complete the first five modules. They will introduce you to WEAP and the basic elements of water demand and supply analysis.
