Human interventions in a bifurcating river system can disturb the discharge distribution at the river bifurcation. This causes unwanted water level increases in the branch which receives additional discharge. To avoid this, a set of compensating interventions can be designed such that they counteract each other’s effect at the bifurcation. However, this may be challenging due to inherent uncertainties around discharges and hydraulic roughnesses. Therefore, in this study we assess the impact of compensating interventions on system-wide water levels considering a range of discharges and roughness conditions.
