A mathematical model for decision making in water quality management of the Arkansas River was developed. The model centered around a zoned-optimization model which required a uniform treatment level for groups of waste waters only within grouped zones and which minimized the overall treatment. In extending the application of the zone treatment principle for regional water quality management, the feasibility of three zoning criteria were investigated. These three criteria were sub-basin, weight of influent BOD, and BOD-flow ratio. A regional water quality management model involving the interrelationship of organic waste discharged, the stream assimilative capacity, and the dissolved oxygen in the stream was formulated into a linear structure with an application of the Streeter-Phelps equation. The total BOD removal within the basin in pounds per day, was selected as the optimization objective. (Author)
