Abstract
The set of programs and options described in the study provide a versatile new approach to river basin planning for water quality management. Although water quality relationships are the primary considerations of the calculations performed here, the programs are very general and can be manipulated to consider many water uses. Since water quality strongly effects all uses of water, the programs are designed to consider most of the legitimate water uses. The models are capable of analyzing the quality-quantity interrelationships for municipal and industrial water supply, flood control, fish and aquatic life, irrigation, and recreation. These and other uses can be considered either by studying how to manage existing situations or by introducing various design alternatives concerning physical and structural components. As an analytical technique for planning and utilizing river basins, this 'River Basin Simulation Program' represents a major programming effort having as its base a sound analytical and engineering consideration of water quality.
