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 report documents the logic and operation of three computer programs developed to present this index in report and/or graphical form using the Storet Database as input and the graphics capability of the Integrated Plotting Package. Data from the Raritan Basin is presented as a test application.
