Current conventional and optimal reservoir flood control operation methods insufficiently utilize historical reservoir operation data, which include rainfall, runoff generation, and inflow from the watershed, as well as the operational experience of decision makers over many years. Therefore, this study proposed and evaluated a new method for extracting reservoir flood control operation rules from historical operation data using the C4.5 algorithm. Thus, in this paper, the C4.5 algorithm is first introduced; then, the generation of the flood control operation dataset, the construction of decision tree-based (DT-based) rules, and the subsequent design of a real-time operating scheme are detailed. A case study of the Rizhao Reservoir is then employed to demonstrate the feasibility and even superiority of the operating scheme formulated using DT-based rules. Compared with previously proposed conventional and optimal reservoir operation methods, the DT-based method has the advantages of strong and convenient adaptability, enabling decision makers to effectively guide real-time reservoir operation.
