A method of utilizing existing water quality and hydraulic computer models to arrive at least cost solutions of water quality problems is presented. The alternatives considered are reduction of waste loads by treatment, industrial process modification, and construction of reservoirs for low flow augmentation. The application of the methods to water resources problems in the James River Basin is discussed. The least cost solution of the water quality control problem is presented along with a subjective analysis of various alternatives. (Author)
