The present research has yielded a series of publications. They contain the results of: (1) Compilation of water quality data and parameters, and hydrology of Kansas streams and rivers. The compilation could serve as a convenient source of information and should be useful for constructing mathematical models that are relevant to the water quality control and water resource management. (2) The effect of thermal discharge on stream water quality. A modified transient version of the Streeter-Phelps model and of Dobbin's dispersion model along with the energy balance equation is employed to analyze the effects of waste heat discharge from power plants on stream water quality. (3) Water quality control by artificial aeration of stream receiving thermal and organic waste discharges. The location and number of diffuser type aerators to be installed along the stream are determined so as to maintain the stream DO content above a certain minimum requirement.
