A conceptual study of water quality in the Wisconsin River between Wisconsin Dells and Lake Wisconsin was performed to determine the range of choices that might be available for determining the trade-off between organic waste discharges and heat assimilation from possible power plant sites. The QUAL-3 river quality model, as modified by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for use on the upper Wisconsin and lower Fox Rivers, was used for preliminary simulations of the effect of potential heat discharges from three possible power plant sites on the levels of dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, and algae growth during times of extremely low flow. Hydraulic parameters for the QUAL-3 model were extimated from simulations employing the Army Corps' HEC-2 water surface profile model.
