A new methodology has been developed and evaluated for making long-term forecasts for the dry and wet period phenomenon. This study emphasizes the use of actual data as opposed to synthetic data. This is extremely valuable for the reservoir water manager dealing with the actual data as opposed to artificial data, which may or may not be materialized. Utilization of the method significantly improves storage reservoir management and also acts as a valuable tool in sizing the needed capacity of the existing or non-exciting reservoir systems.
