The water quality controversy generally, and specifically in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is discussed. The controversy centers around: the methods of obtaining various levels of water quality, the level of water quality that should be attained, and the institutional means of instituting policy. A linear programming model was used to find the lowest cost methods of achieving alternative dissolved oxygen levels in the Mississippi River in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
