    Conceptual reservoir-type models of river systems, that mimic the results of detailed hydrodynamic models, provide a powerful tool for numerous river management applications. Thanks to their computationally efficient model structure they are very well suited for applications that require long term simulations or a large number of model iterations. However, one well-known problem is that conceptual models have difficulties to account for backwater effects. For this reason, their application to tidally influenced river reaches so far was almost non-existent. This paper introduces an extension of an existing grey-box reservoir modelling technique to incorporate tidally influenced river reaches. The methodology is demonstrated for the downstream part of the rivers Zenne and Rupel in Belgium. Results show a minor loss of accuracy when the detailed model is replaced by the surrogate conceptual model. Also, the tidal effects are well represented.
