This study is to compare the Balog-Balog multipurpose, single dam project with the proposed Balog-Balog multiple dam system, using reliability and cost-benefit analyses, of the ability of the two reservoir systems to deliver irrigation water supply to the Balog-Balog irrigation system including hydropower generation and flood control functions through optimization-simulation model studies. On the basis of reliability to deliver irrigation water, generate hydropower, reservoir life, people displaced due to reservoir construction, flood control benefits, and economic analysis, the Balog-Balog single, high dam is better project compared to the multiple dam system.
