The tendency to set quality of the water resource rather than quality of discharges as the objective of environmental control makes it necessary to develop some relationship between concentration of individual pollutants in the resource and in the discharge in terms of characteristics of the receiving estuary. Moreover, the growing percentage of the water resource which is degraded in quality through beneficial use together with the increasing investment necessary to restore water quality, makes it important to minimize the cost of achieving water quality objectives. The study makes use of modern mathematical models, programming techniques, and input-output analysis to optimize quality control systems; and illustrates the use of the models by examples drawn from San Francisco Bay data and quality requirements.
