In this work, we propose mechanistic models for water quality and hydrological management in freshwater and saline lakes within a dynamic optimisation framework. We formulate management problems as optimal control problems for two case studies corresponding to water bodies located in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. The hydrological model is used to address flooding and salinity issues in salt lakes. The water quality model allows dealing with eutrophication problems in freshwater reservoirs. The proposed optimization models provide decision-making tools to plan management actions for different objectives and under different scenarios, as well as to evaluate their effects.
