Reservoir Summary File (*.xre)

The Reservoir Summary File (*.xre) describes diversion, release, storage and stream flow data at river nodes that contain a reservoir. The header describes the reservoir ID, account and name. In addition, it describes the administration number, on/off switch, owner, and decreed amount for each water right located at this river node. It then contains a time series for the following:

# Column Description
0 River ID River node ID
0 Account Reservoir account (0 is the total)
0 Year Year of the simulation
0 Mo Month of the simulation
