The report is designed as a handbook specifically oriented to water quality and water resources planners and managers. It presents a large amount of basic information concerning water quality modeling including procedures for: model evaluation, model selection, integration of modeling with planning activities, and contracting modeling projects. Planners without previous experience in water quality modeling may use the information and procedures included in the handbook to determine whether a water quality model could and should be used in a particular planning program, and which specific model would be cost effective. This includes a step-by-step procedure leading to the rejection or selection of models according to specific project needs. The handbook discusses the implications which accompany the decision to model, including the needs for additional labor and specialized technical expertise which are generated.
