The Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1970 required the States to develop comprehensive water-quality management plans. In 1971 the State of Illinois, through the Illinois Institute for Environmental Quality, initiated a major program to address these new planning requirements. As part of this effort, the Argonne National Laboratory Center for Environmental Studies was requested to develop and test a methodology for preparing cost-effective regional and river-basin water-quality management plans. Five planner-oriented computer models were developed. Each of these represented a particular aspect of the overall problem of water-quality management.
