The NSF-Water Quality Index is a numerical expression which reflects the composite influence of nine physical, chemical, and bacteriological parameters to water quality. It was developed and has been widely field tested by the National Sanitation Foundation as a means for reporting the current status and trends of water quality. This system comprises three computer programs developed to present this index in report and/or in graphical form using the STORET Database as input and also the graphics capability of the Integrated Plotting Package...Software Description: The program is written in the Fortran programming language for implementation on a IBM 360/370 computer using the DOS/OS operating system. 150K bytes of core storage are required to operate the model.
