With the ecosystem being gradually changed, the Colorado river is facing the trials of water shortage and disconnection, which not only has a serious influence on the plants and animals around the area, but also altered the production and life of people impressively. Therefore, it is urgent to redefine the water allocation plan. With some data on the current situation of the basin, a multi-objective planning model for water allocation was developed to achieve a rational allocation of water resources, aiming at the demand of each industry in each surrounding states. In this model, multidimensional knowledge capabilities are involved, integrating other disciplines such as academics, physics, and economics, and how frequently the model is rerun by formulating a rule to make the model results more realistic, we also test our parameters and results through robustness analysis.
