Recently, owing to industrial growth and increasing living standards, the water demand in Taiwan has increased significantly. How to use water resources effectively and exploiting multiple water resources to
assist in supply are getting more important. However, development of hydraulic facility has been postponed because of financial concern and environmental impact. Hence, resolving the tension between financial concern, environmental impact and economic growth, while ensuring the sustainable development of water resources is necessary for government authorities. Owing to the system dynamics is built base on causal loop and stock-flow diagram, these represent system structure and operation procedures simultaneously. Accordingly, this investigation proposes a decision support system by system dynamics for evaluating water policy systematically and quantitatively, with reference to water quantity, water quality and net financial benefit as they pertain to the planning and management of regional water resources. Finally, a case study in Tachia river basin is adopted herein to show the effectiveness of the proposal.
